Lightened up Chocolate Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by smellyvegetarian

Just like Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake, only a little lighter! Moist and fudgy, just be careful not to overbake. I made this for DH's birthday, then kept leftovers in the fridge until a dinner party where I served it with pureed strawberries and whipped cream--chocolate strawberry shortcake! It got lots of compliments!!

Made this the other day & used some of it to bribe a 12-year old kid in our mobile home park to help me out with a kid-friendly challenge for ZWT6, & both were big successes, both the drawing the girl helped me with AND the cake! Even took your hint & served it topped with some sliced strawberries, which was a nice change from the usual frosting! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
