Chocolate Pound Cake

Chocolate Pound Cake - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
A Chocolate pound cake is moist and buttery with the right amount of chocolate flavor. This cake does not need frosting, it taste good when eaten plain. It would be a very good dessert when served with fresh berries and a dollop of softly whipped cream.
