Chocolate Pound Cake from Scratch

This is one of the first cakes that I learned how to make when I got married. It is not difficult, but it seems like it is because it looks a little fancy in the bundt pan and all. Chocolate pound cake was a staple anytime I had to bring dessert to a get together or party.

Chocolate Pound Cake is my go-to when I have to bring dessert to parties or get togethers.

The best thing about this chocolate pound cake, is that unlike many others, it doesn't start with a boxed cake mix. It is made from scratch with staple ingredients you most likely have in your pantry. This also allows you to substitute or leave out ingredients if you need to. It is extremely simple to make and goes well with ice cream or berries.

Next time you need a simple, chocolate-y dessert, this pound cake is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
