    I was disappointed; cake came out pretty dry and tasted like ordinary chocolate cake.

    I was originally going to give this recipe three stars. Part of the cake stuck to the pan when I unmolded it, so of course I ate it :) and by itself, I found the cake to be relatively bland and not big on chocolate flavor. However, with the glaze on it, I thought the cake improved, and it was nicely moist. It also got a lot of positive feedback at the party I took it to, so I guess my initial reaction was a little harsh. However: I wouldn't call this cake a "pound cake" at all. That led me to expect a dense, rich, fudgy cake, which this is not.

    I made a cake and had no frosting, looking for a chocolate glaze, I decided to use this one. Amazing! It was simple and so perfect. I will have to try the complete recipe sometime! Thanks for sharing, will be my "go-to" glaze from now on!

    Absolutely delicious.. I made this as a thank you for some co-workers. I had people moaning with pleasure at the taste (can I say that?). One word, I used a decorative Nordic bundt pan, and it barely contained the cake, I'll probably use the standard bundt pan the next time.
