    This is the darkest of dark chocolate pound cakes with an incredibly rich decadent glaze. It is beautiful enough for company but great enough to make for our families, who are our greatest critics :)

      this is the most precise recipe-- the cake was done in the exact time, came out of the pan perfectly, looks and tastes great! i used the glaze and confectioners sugar, garnished with raspberries and strawberries- very impressive presentation

      I was disappointed; cake came out pretty dry and tasted like ordinary chocolate cake.

      I was originally going to give this recipe three stars. Part of the cake stuck to the pan when I unmolded it, so of course I ate it :) and by itself, I found the cake to be relatively bland and not big on chocolate flavor. However, with the glaze on it, I thought the cake improved, and it was nicely moist. It also got a lot of positive feedback at the party I took it to, so I guess my initial reaction was a little harsh. However: I wouldn't call this cake a "pound cake" at all. That led me to expect a dense, rich, fudgy cake, which this is not.
