Magazine Monday #10: Chocolate Pound Cake

This week's recipe comes from the October 2008 issue of Bon Appetit, the same one that had last week's braised beef ribs recipe. This is also the issue with the hideous cover that a lot of people had issues with. But, the magazine did include three recipes I've made in the last 10 days, including today's (the hazelnut pie was the third) so I'm not going to complain too much about the art direction.

In the same feature that had the braised beef ribs there was also a recipe for Deep Chocolate Pound Cake. I had all the ingredients on hand, and since I'm starting to squirrel things away for the winter in my freezer, I thought this would be a nice thing to whip out for a family dinner or a quick chocolate fix. The recipe is here.

The first slice I tried, I was skeptical that this cake was chocolatey enough to warrant it's name, but after a second slice, I was convinced, and by the third slice, I was addicted. The texture was moist and dense, yet fudgey. I have sliced up the rest, wrapped it well, and put it in the freezer. Too dangerous to have a whole pound cake out and available to me! This recipe is a keeper.

looks wonderful- and you know pound cake only gets more and more delicious as it sits- not that this one will have time to!

Dangerous indeed! I saw that recipe and bookmarked it too!

Completely disagree. Cake was not very chocolatey (milk chocolatey, not deep chocolatey), not dense, not rich, on the dry side, and a lot of work for very little return. I bake stuff all the time, and this I will not ever bake again.

Disagree. I bake stuff all the time, and found this to be only lightly chocolatey, not dense, not moist, dry, not fine texxtured as a pound cake should be, all in all no better than a cheap boxed mix. Lots of ingredients, lots of work, lots of steps, for very little return. Never again.

Disagree all you want, Manxlass. I thought it was excellent.
