    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    I'm not sure where this recipe originated; I've made it for my family for over 20 years. To me, it tastes like chocolate ice cream. Make it a mocha pound cake by adding 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules! Make the cake extra special by adding Fudgy Mocha Frosting W/Pecans--Or Hazelnut Coffee Frosting!. :) If Hershey's Special Dark dutch-processed cocoa is used, the cake will be a rich dark color! *Note: For a lighter, even more tender cake, separate the eggs; cream in the egg yolks with the butter and sugars; fold the stiffly beaten whites into the batter after the sour cream is added.

      This cake tastes wonderful! I separated the eggs, and the cake was very light and airy....not like any pound cake I've made before. I did add the coffee, and found that it added just a hint of mocha flavor. And you are right....it does taste like chocolate ice cream! Thanks for sharing! Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game.

      This cake is awesome! I didn't even frost it, I just served with whipped cream. Just as a note: cream the butter sugar and eggs in a large bowl. I didn't bother to separate the eggs. I'm sure I'll be making this again.
