Cin's Strawberry-Chocolate Pound Cake

Straws Kitchen


Not only was this a fun cake to make, it turned out to be a very good dessert. Everyone loved it.

I like creating different pound cakes. They always end up making such a pretty presentation. Great to take to a pot luck or have at a family dinner.

How to Make Cin's Strawberry-Chocolate Pound Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 350dF. Generously grease and flour a Bundt pan (or 10-inch tube pan) and sprinkle some sugar-crystals on the bottom.
  • 2Mix the Strawberry preserves with the warm water, add the sea salt and lemon stirring until mixed thoroughly.
  • 3Pour into large a mixing bowl, add cake mix and all the other ingredients.
    Blend together on low with hand mixer, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • 4Pour into the bundt pan, (I bang it on the counter a couple times to release all the air bubbles).
    Then I sprinkled sugar-crystals over the top of batter.
  • 5Put pan in the center of oven to bake for 45 to 50 minutes (cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean).
  • 6Cool in pan on cooling rack for 25-min's...then invert onto cake plate and let finish cooling completely before drizzling with your glaze.
  • 7GLAZE:
    Whisk ingredients together well and drizzle over cooled cake letting it run down sides.

    When cake was slice it had the appearance inside like a richdarker version of a red-velvet-cake).

    You can definitely see some bits of strawberries from the preserves throught the cake.
  • 8P.S.
    Garnish with slices of Strawberries on top of glaze if you'd like.
    You can just dust the cake with powdered sugar if you don't want a glaze it.

    Another good way to glaze this cake is to take some of the Strawberry Preserves and heat, stirring, until it's becomes thinner like a syrup; poke some holes into cake and pour over the cake...or mix it with powdered sugar to make a thicker strawberry preserve glaze.
