Chocolate Pound Cake

I bought a large flute tube pan for years but never use it for baking expect one time .The one and first time I used this pan was when Gertruda was here to teach me how to bake chiffon cake. At the time , I don't have any Angel cake pan yet! Well , so during this baking season ,I would love to take the advantage to bake something different and fabulous.I try to make the marble effect for this chocolate pound cake but the marble effect don't come out as I wanted.Anyway,here is my humble Chocolate Pound Cake .



Ingredients:


3 cups all purpose flour


1 tsp baking powder


1/2 tsp salt


1 container ( 8 oz) sour Cream


1 cup (2 stick ) butter,softened


1 1/2 cups sugar


5 eggs


2 tsp vanilla extract


1/2 cup semisweet chocolate,melted








Method:


1:Preheat oven to 350 F.Lightly grease and flour 12 cup flute tube pan or 10 inch tube pan.


2:Mix flour,baking powder and salt:sieve and set aside.Mix sour cream.


3:beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.Add in eggs,one at a time,beating well after each addition.Add in flour mixture,vanilla and sour cream until mixed well.


4:Transfer one-third of the mixture to melted chocolate and stir together.Pour the remaining mixture into prepared pan and then drop tablespoonfuls of the chocolate mixture on top.Use a knife ,gently swirl the 2 mixtures together to give a marble effect.


5:Bake in the preheat oven 70-75 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.Cool in pan 10 minutes on wire rack.Loosen cake from side of pan with small knife or spatula.Invert cake onto rack, gently remove pan.Cool completely on wire rack.Decorate with butte ricing or cream cheese icing or sprinkle with some sugar powder,if desired.


Makes 12 to 16 servings.


I top the cake with cream cheese topping and drizzle with some chocolate fudge.
