Chocolate Pound Cake

Decadent chocolate pound cake is perfect for any occasion—and it’s easy too! This chocolate cake is big enough to serve 12 so everyone will get a slice.

Butter Sugar Brown sugar Eggs Vanilla extract Brewed coffee Buttermilk Flour Unsweetened cocoa powder Baking powder Salt


Preheat the oven to 325ºF and grease and flour a 10” bundt pan. Spray the pan with baking spray and then toss some flour in the pan, tapping out any extra flour.


Beat the butter and both sugars in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to blend all the butter and sugar together evenly. 


Add the eggs to the bowl one at a time. You want to add the eggs slowly, mixing after you add each egg. Mix in the vanilla extract.


Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.


In another small bowl or large measuring cup, mix the brewed coffee and buttermilk.


Add about ⅓ of the flour mixture to the bowl with the butter and eggs. Mix until combined and then add about ½ of the coffee mixture. 


Mix again and then repeat this step until all the flour and all the coffee are added to the main mixing bowl.


Pour the chocolate pound cake into the prepared bundt pan and then bake for about 60 minutes.


Stick a toothpick in the center of the cake; it should come out clean and dry once the pound cake is finished baking.


Let the chocolate bundt cake cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before flipping it over and serving.


I can guarantee that everyone you know will want a big piece of this chocolate pound cake. It is so moist and tender, and it has a strong chocolate taste that is irresistible.
