4 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened chocolate, chopped
Very easy to make. I ommitted the sour cream and only put in 1 cup of sugar as I couldn't get bitter chocolate only the normal dark kind, but it rose beautifully and tasted great.
This cake was very moist and tasty, though I feel it could use more chocolate than what was given on the recipes, maybe 2 oz. But, delicious! I used a chocolate glaze on top, too with powdered sugar, very tastey!
Extremely moist! Sour cream always makes cakes moist. I used semi-sweet chocolate and the cake turned out perfect. No icing necessary.
If you're looking for a chocolate pound cake recipe, this is a very good one. When I saw "fudge" in the title, I hoped it was a fudgey and chocolatey traditional chocolate cake. I love pound cake and I love chocolate cake, but the combination of the two has never been my favorite. I could tell from tasting the batter that it wasn't going to be chocolatey enough for me, so I added a half cup each of cocoa and sugar. Still just wasn't what I was after.
Wonderful cake! I also used 1 cup of strong brewed coffee instead of the water. I increased the chocolate to 6 ounces. Very moist and delicious. I used a bundt pan and the baking time for my cake was about 40 minutes. Will definitely be making this alot!
The best chocolate cake I have ever made or eaten for that matter! Moist, thick and perfectly chocolate! I did substitute vanilla hazelnut coffee for water and added an extra ounce of chocolate to the original recipe. This recipe is already book-marked and will certainly use it again!
This is a really easy, delicious cake! I did add a teaspoon of cinnamon for a "Mexican chocolate" flair and for presentation's sake, I made a glaze of 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 tbl milk, and 1 tsp vanilla and drizzled it over the top. I will definitely be making this again and again, thanks!
