    Kind of like a dried out, less chocolatly brownie. I had high hopes for this but I doubt it will get all eaten :(

    Great pound cake, easy to make and great results. I modified it slightly using one cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups all purpose. Makes two large loaves, took 1 hour and 15 minutes to bake.

    After I made this and let it cool,I tasted a piece and thought there wasn't much of a flavor to it.But as Chef Marg,had said it tasted better the next day,and it does :).So, if you are going to make this cake,make it the day before you want to serve it.The flavors seem to blend better when it sits overnight.Thank you for posting.
