Chocolate pound cake is one recipe you and your family will love.  Make this chocolate pound cake for any holiday or event.  If your guests and family like chocolate, you won’t have any left.  This cake would be wonderful for Valentine’s Day.  We love it with the chocolate chip glaze but you could use any kind of frosting if you like frosting on a pound cake.  You could just dust this cake with powdered sugar on top.  This cake is wonderful for coffee anytime and children as well as adults will love it.  Top it with ice cream or whipped cream or just eat it plain.  No matter how you serve it this cake is a winner.  You might also like my daughter’s pound cake recipe on our site.
