Chocolate Pound Cake
There’s just something special about pound cake baked in a loaf pan, isn’t there? The shape alone evokes fond memories of the corner bakery or a special treat from the supermarket’s baking aisle. But it’s the cake’s tender, close-grained texture and marvelous flavor that make it a true queen among cakes. While just a simple slice on its own is delicious, this pound cake is also the ideal base for ice cream and sauce (hot fudge? caramel?), or fruit and whipped cream.
