    Has anyone made with all butter or used something else for the shortening? I dont use shortening. I wonder about coconut oil?? Thanks

    I made this for a co-worker's birthday. It was received well! I would have liked it a little more moist and a little more chocolatey. I like my pound cake a little more dense, this one was lighter than typical, which could be a real plus depending on your preference. Thanks for a yummy cake!

    This was fabulous! I've made chocolate pound cake before and it wasn't quite 'right'. I was a little worried because the picture wasn't very chocolatey looking but this was just right. I had to be really careful with the KitchenAid because as another poster pointed out it's really too much for it. Followed directions exactly, used a bundt pan, cooked for 1.5 hours.
