Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe


  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 300° F (180° C).

2. Grease a fluted Bundt pan.

3. Beat one cup of butter until creamy and then add the sugar, one cup at a time. Beat well.

4. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Alternately add the flour mixture with the sour cream, starting and ending with the dry ingredients.

5. Pour the cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan and place in the oven.

6. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.

7. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, then turn off the oven. Leave the cake in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes, then invert the pan and remove the cake.

Note: A traditional American pound cake would contain one pound each of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. This recipe is quite popular in Southern states and is usually a staple at picnics and potlucks. American pound cakes are lighter but often contain an abundance of butter to provide a rich taste and are considered a staple in the cuisine of the southern United States.
