Double Chocolate Pound Cake
Yes, you read that correctly. This is a double-chocolate pound cake... Chocolate is the ultimate pick-me-up in my opinion. Whether the weather outside is crummy, you've had a hard day at work, or you've got a case of the Mondays, a little bit of chocolate can go a long way to lifting your spirits. At the very least it will remind you that there are still good things in this world!
This double chocolate pound cake is so dense and packed with chocolate that you might want to pick up and run away with it... With very few steps to follow, chocolate comfort is only a oven-baked cake of chocolate-goodness away!
INSTRUCTIONS Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard loaf pan and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the sugar and butter for 7 minutes total. This will incorporate the air it needs to make the cake rise. Scrape down the sides and beat for an additional minute. Add the vanilla and beat on low. Add in eggs one at a time and once all are incorporated, beat in salt. Slowly beat in flour and cocoa powder. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.
