Today, the world became one Chocolate pound cake fan richer! Yes, our own grandpa! And here is how it happened. Believe it or not, in my short kitchen career, I never tried to make this beautiful chocolate cake. Whenever it was time for desert, everyone was asking for something creamy, with delicious filling or a cheesecake.

Nobody wanted good old chocolate cakes anymore! But, looking through various recipes on the Internet, I was always attracted by photos of these plentiful cakes like Tracey’s chocolate cake or the delicious cake from Tutti-Dolci. But, for any eventuality, I kept some of these recipes in my bookmarks.


And yesterday was the perfect day for the chocolate pound cake to spread it’s aroma in my kitchen. My husband was on a business trip, while my son Marco was at my husband’s parents place. Perfect! I was certain that I would not hear something like “Vera, why don’t you, nevertheless, make those chocolate cupcakes?”
