    Shire Born's Note:

    This rich, supremely chocolatey, moist pound cake is so simple and yet so impressive, especially when frosted with my Salted Caramel Frosting, which perfectly complements the dense sweetness of the cake. If you have any leftovers, don't refrigerate, just leave tightly covered at room temperature.

      Beautiful cake that was super delicious. The directions were perfect and the cake turned out amazing. The only reason I give it a 4 star instead of a 5 star review is that I find the amount of sugar in the recipe to be a bit excessive (3 cups!). I did half the amount when I made the cake, but also feel perfectly comfortable to only use a third next time I make it :)

      This cake is outstanding!!!! The moistness and rich chocolate
      flavor are impeccable. By far, for my cake decorating clients,
      the most popular cake!

      Moist is right! I think it was the most moist pound cake I have ever made. I think the addition of the coffee gave it more of a gourmet touch. I made it in a bundt pan and drizzled with a homemade caramel sauce. I made it for a co-workers birthday and it was well received.
