Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe: Mama Would Be Proud of This Moist Chocolate Pound Cake

This is not your mama’s chocolate pound cake. But she’ll be proud after tasting it!

You’ll need:

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Butter or spray with nonstick cooking spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the boiling water into the cocoa powder a little at a time making a lump-free paste until the cocoa powder has dissolved and is smooth. Cool.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift cake flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. With stand or hand mixer, beat butter until pale and smooth. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and beat, on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape bottom and sides of bowl as needed. Beat in the cooled cocoa mixture.
  5. On low speed, add the flour mixture alternating with the milk. Mix only until combined. (Do not overmix!)
  6. Fill the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Bake for about 55 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center just comes out clean. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 15-20 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of the pan to remove the cake. Peel off parchment paper, re-invert and cool completely on a wire rack.
