With chocolate cakes, I’ve got to be in the mood for it. As simple as a chocolate cake recipe can be, I found it to be the hardest especially when it comes to finding that perfect chocolatey cake that you can never get sick of eating it.
I’m picky when it comes to chocolate cakes. It has to be rich, but not too dense. It has to be luscious and not crumbly. It has to be moist and not too dry. Best if the texture is moist and also (somewhat) creamish-cottony. And without compromising the chocolatey taste.
The traditional ones use buttermilk and most use coffee which I tend to avoid. The way and method it is being made can also vary from recipe to recipe; which makes it even harder to pick that one recipe to suit your mood.
Add that to the number of eggs used, which and when ingredients are mixed in together and you’ll find yourself in a a clumsy muddle.A few trial and error in the last few months led me to this:
Considering that (almost)every recipe is different, this is by far one of the best chocolate pound cakes I have trialled and errored.
The only thing missing is the ganache, but I reckon if the cake is good enough, there would be no need for ganache at all! Enjoy.
