Old-Fashioned Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe

My Mom's Recipe


Here's what you'll need to make this old-fashioned chocolate pound cake recipe.

Whip butter until smooth. Add sugar, salt, and spices and continue to whip. Beat eggs together and slowly drizzle in, scraping bowl as necessary.

Whisk dry ingredients together. Alternate adding dry ingredients and buttermilk, beginning and ending with dry. Your batter will be thick and beautiful!

Scrape batter into the prepared pan and bake at 325F until done. Temperature should read 195F-200F in the center of the cake.

Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out to cool completely. Serve it plain, or do what I like to do:

Once cool, glaze with your choice of glazes. I like a two-tone glaze, but nobody will complain if you serve it as-is!
