Double Chocolate Pound Cake Zoom

Double Chocolate Pound Cake

Double the chocolate means double the deliciousness. Melted semi-sweet chocolate combines with delectable, rich cocoa powder in the batter to intensify the chocolate taste of this luscious cake. This recipe could more accurately be called “Triple Chocolate”, as chopped dark chocolate and chocolate curls can garnish the top for a chocolate presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I also used foil for the bottom it makes it looks so cute! Go crazy with the decorations kids love it! Also you can use chocolate for the bottom and top and make it look like an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top! The ideas are endless with this pan! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fun and easy cake. I use the larger tips along with the wilton turntables to create an easy and flawless texture. Try using the edible glitter for an even more dynamic effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased the silicon version of the giant cup cake here in South Africa - the recipe on the packaging called for using ready made cake mix - instead of using the ready made mix I used the double chocolate pound cake recipe - the cake was awesome - I decorated the top with butter cream and sprinkles. I intend to make the giant cup cake again using the double chocolate pound cake recipe for my daughters 1st birthday- the cupcake will be decorated as a house with Barney and Friends (made from modeling chocolate) playing out front. I am about to start my own business and will be using this recipe often.
