    Jellyqueen's Note:

    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.

      I added another 1/4 cup of cocoa in exchange for 1/4 cup flour. I also added a 1/4 cup of sour cream. I also drizzled with a chocolate glaze. I made it for a Japanese exchange dinner that my husband and I did. The Japanese love chocolate cake but don't like too sweet, so this was perfect. THey even asked for more!
