This was very good. My cake was moist and perfect. I made the following changes though: I didn't have enough sugar, so I subbed 2 c Splenda and 1 c brown sugar. Also, the cake was done in 1 hr, 15 min. Adding 15 more minutes to the cake would have made it too dry I think-- just watch in your oven the first time. I frosted it with some melted chocolate chips that I thinned with a bit of evaporated milk. Next time, I think I will stir the cocoa in with the flour-- it might be a bit easier to combine with the batter then stirring it in the last minute. Might try some differant extract flavors instead of the vanilla-- orange, raspberry, or almond would all be good.


I used this recipe to make a friend's wedding cake, and it was a hit!! A delicious moist cake with just the right density. I left out the cocoa and added lemon extract to make a white layer as well, and have been asked to supply one for a party! Thanks for sharing.


Wonderful chocolate pound cake, my family really enjoyed it in a bundt cake form with chocolate frosting drizzled over it. The cake was moist and delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
