Glazed Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe
what you'll need
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs beaten
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tsp corn syrup or honey
let's do it
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees then line the bottom of an 8" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper. Coat generously with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, or the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt, and mix until evenly combined.
- Add softened butter, oil, and milk then beat on medium speed until smooth. Add vanilla and beaten eggs then mix until well combined.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan then bake for 75–80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes before removing. Return cake to the rack until completely cool.
- When cake has cooled, place chocolate chips and cream into a microwave-safe bowl then microwave for 20–30 seconds, just until warm. Remove from microwave, allowing mixture to sit for about 1 minute so the chocolate can continue to melt.
- Add corn syrup or honey then stir until smooth and glossy. If chocolate is not completely melted, heat in 10-second intervals in the microwave until completely melted. Pour glaze over pound cake loaf and spread evenly. Allow glaze to set then slice and serve.
