Recipe by Joy Cowling Andrews
"This was one of my favorite things to make when I learned to bake. My mom made this when we were little and it was a real treat to have this as a decadent coffee cake. This is good without any topping, but I have tried a variety of things on the top: melted chocolate frosting, powdered sugar or glaze made from powdered sugar and milk."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

LOVE this cake! My son volunteered me to make a couple of cakes for his school's cake walk fundraiser and I decided to give this one a test before making it for the school. It was by far one of the easiest cakes I have ever made and it is delicious! The only draw back (if you consider it one) is that once I put it on the table for the family to try it was gone in less than five minutes. It was a huge hit and my husband is having me take one up to his work today for him and his co-workers. I am sure it will be a big hit at the cake walk and has become a family favorite!
I hate giving negative reviews but I feel like I have to on this one. I am a professional cake designer so I know my way around cake. This cake had a strange texture and was very heavy but not in a good way! The chocolate flavor was very lacking. My two year old wouldn't even eat this cake. I will stick with my own chocolate pound cake recipe. Sorry!
Excellent recipe! My first successful Bundt cake. The author is not kidding about greasing the fluted pan liberally. I used shortening and flour, make sure to get in all the creases. I ended up using buttermilk because I had precisely one cup left. I also used BAKERS squares as I did not have powdered cocoa. Both easy conversions to the original recipe simply by reducing the butter a bit. (3 Tb in my case). It is also true that the cake does not need frosting. I simply drizzled the 'Chocolate Glaze I' on top for fun. Yummy cake! Thanks for posting!
i got excited......and I'm two eggs short. I'll make this bad boy tomorrow. But that's my guess.........CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE!!!!!
This sounds sooo yummy. It takes coffee cake to the next level!
I am sorry, but I didn't like this cake at all. It had really unappealing consistency and flavor.
I wasn't a big fan of this recipe (sorry!). The chocolate flavour is definitely weak and it wasn't as moist as other pound cakes I've made. I followed it as written.
This cake is moist and delicious! I added coconut and pecans to the batter then frosted it with a German Chocolate cake frosting also on this site and it was wonderful, however this cake really needs no frosting. A dusting of powdered sugar for looks will do.
