    acerast's Note:

    Dusted with confectioner's sugar, this appears to be a simple pound cake...however, in the mouth it is anything but simple! This cake is moist, dense, and very chocolatey-almondy-buttery..... just down right delicious!! I have been making this recipe for years and like to serve it with real whipped cream. This is another creation by Boston caterer, Ellen Helman, from The Uncommon Gourmet.

      Delicious! Rich and dense, redolent of Amaretto and chocolate. Next time I will whip my cream with some Amaretto in place of sugar for sweetener. Thanks, Acerast! Made for US Regional Cookbooks Tag.
