Chocolate Cream Pound Cake - Cake Slice Bakers March 2011


This months bake is an easy cake from Lauren Chattman’s Cake Keeper Cakes. Chocolate Cream Pound Cake from the Loaf Cakes chapter.

A simple plain loaf cake. Plain only because it is unadorned – the taste is great! I’ve tried a lot of different chocolate cakes and this is a good one. The cream in the title refers to some double (heavy) cream added to the batter, which gives the cake a tight, tender and moist crumb.


Adding cream to a cake like this was something that dairy farming families did to use up extra cream in days gone by.It was delicious served for pudding warmed with some butterscotch sauce, think sticky toffee pudding but with chocolate cake.


It didn’t really need to be gussied up though – it was perfect spread with a little butter. I’ll be making this one again for sure.

Your cake looks wonderfully moist. I had a little problem with sinking but it still tasted great. I love your idea about adding the sauce. I'm definitely going to have to make another loaf now.

Oh my goodness....I bet it tasted amazing with the warm butterscotch sauce! I would love some with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top =) I too did something different with mine...thought it would be boring by itself!
