My son loves old fashioned pound cake with its crispy top and dense interior, but he said the only thing he could think of that might make it better was if it could be chocolate. So I tweaked my original cream cheese pound cake to satisfy his chocolate desire. We love it and we hope you do too!

How to Make Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. A stand mixer works best for this recipe for me. Cream together the butter and cream cheese on high until almost white. Gradually add sugar. Gradually add the cocoa. Add the dash of cinnamon. Never stop the mixer if possible. Add the eggs one at a time incorporating each completely before adding the next. Add the vanilla. Add the salt.
  2. Gradually add the flour one cup at a time incorporating each completely. Turn the mixer on high and mix for at least another minute.
  3. Pour the cake batter into a well greased and floured tube pan. May use powdered sugar instead of flour if you like. This will add to the crispness of the sides. Place cake in a cold oven and bake at 315 degrees for approximately 2 hours. I usually check the readiness with a knife at 1 hour 45 minutes.
    Allow to stand in the pan about 20 minutes before turning out. Then allow another 20 minutes before cutting to serve.
  4. Can place on a beautiful cake plate and surround with frosted grapes or chocolate dipped strawberries.
    This cake is wonderful alone or served with ice cream or fruit or both! Whipped cream is nice too!
