This recipe makes an elegant cake that is beautiful garnished with fresh fruit such as strawberries. Despite the lengthy instructions and long list of ingredients, the cake is very easy to prepare and assemble.
I have been making this cake for years and it is always a big success. It makes a large cake. Just remember that the key to making a good pound cake is to stir the flour before measuring and to sift before adding to cake mixture.
This recipe goes back to when my son was small and that is quite a while back, and I still make them, these are moist and rich no need for an electric mixer for this recipe it's all mixed with a wooden spoon, I have even added in chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips, my recipe #89207 works great with these :)
These are chewy, fudgy, SUPER EASY cookies that you can probably make right now! I have watched these disappear time and again and everyone is always asking for the recipe. It is almost embarrassing to give it out, it is that easy :) Enjoy! (12/14/06: I wanted to add that Betty Crocker has updated this recipe by adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract, but I don't want to change the original recipe.) *12/22/07: Please see my tips at the end of the recipe! **12/23/08: Betty Crocker has now added a version of the same exact recipe in which the cookie dough balls are rolled in granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar. I've tried this and they're also very good.
If you love chocolate, then this is a recipe you really should try! Plan ahead, the pudding needs to refrigerated for 3-4 hours. If desired, you can serve the cooled pudding as a fudge sauce over warmed brownies.
This recipe is one of my Adoptees. After making it, I felt it needed something to perk it up a bit and Chocolate Fluff Icing recipe#81988 was a perfect addition. This cheesecake has a different texture than traditional cream cheese cheesecakes but delicious none the less. Enjoy!
