Chocolate Pound Cake

This Chocolate Pound Cake is a good recipe to have on hand for when that craving strikes. It's super simple to make, and you probably have everything to make it!

Chocolate Pound Cake


If I am completely honest with y'all, too many times I find myself staring into my refrigerator or pantry looking for something chocolate to eat. I'll also admit that too many times I have resorted to eating chocolate chips because I couldn't find anything .... tell me you've been there before, too?!

One of the things I love most about this Chocolate Pound Cake recipe is that I always have all of the ingredients on hand to make it. If you've ever found yourself looking for an easy chocolate fix, this is it! I'm going to guess that you probably have all of the ingredients to make this too - and it's fairly simple to make!

Although we often serve this as is, sometimes, we feel fancy and serve it with ice cream or berries with fresh whipped cream. 

If you would like, you can also sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top before baking.
