“A variation of the classic cream cheese pound cake with mocha flavoring and chips of dark chocolate floating throughout the cake. Serves a crowd and always well received! Keep in an airtight cake safe -- it tastes best if made at least 24 hours prior to serving, and can actually be made 2 to 3 days in advance! ”

Original recipe yields 1 10-inch cake

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Whisk the flour and baking soda together until blended.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the butter, cream cheese, white sugar and brown sugar with a spoon until the mixture is creamy and thoroughly combined. Beat in 1 egg at a time, mixing it in completely before adding the next one. Stir the vanilla extract with the instant espresso powder in a small bowl, and add it to the butter mixture. Stir in until well combined.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture in 1/2-cup quantities until the flour has been thoroughly incorporated. Stir in the chopped dark chocolate. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Start checking for doneness after about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cake dish and allow to finish cooling. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

I'd say this was just o.k. though it met with some great reviews from friends. I had trouble getting espresso powder and so used some starbucks strong instant.
