This cake is so good you don't even need to frost it. When my kids who live away come home, they always request this family favorite!

How to Make Chocolate Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray a bundt pan with Pam. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla together. Add one egg at a time. Combine all dry ingredients together and add to butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Keep your beaters going at a lower speed to prevent the air from escaping your batter. Pour batter into greased bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on rack for 10 minutes. Invert onto a plate and sift with powdered sugar on top.
