Deep Chocolate Pound Cake (浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕)

I used to work with a premium and imported chocolate company last time. My demand for chocolate is very high, haha...I love chocolate as well as chocolate cake. I keep searching for a prefect chocolate cake recipe...Perhaps it won't be one only, it can be many :)
When I saw the Bake Along event for this April "Deep Chocolate Pound Cake", I am super excited to try this recipe out !!!
我对巧克力的要求会比较高,也许是曾经在巧克力公司工作过的关系吧!所以,一直都在寻寻觅觅好吃的巧克力蛋糕食谱。。。希望有一天会找到心目中的“最爱”。
当我看到Bake Along 这个月的主题“浓郁巧克力蛋糕”时,马上有股冲动想要尝试看看!
 
This chocolate cake is easy to make yet very rich, soft and moist in texture.
这巧克力蛋糕的做法很简单,但口感好浓郁,柔软和湿
 
Oh! so good ...
好好吃哦!
Deep Chocolate Pound Cake  (浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕)
(Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit with minor changes)

Ingredients
280gm cake flour flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4tsp baking soda
1/2 cup yogurt/sour cream (I used whipping cream)
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1tbsp honey
2-3 tbsp boiling water
1/2cup sugar
113 gm unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Method:

  1. Position rack in the center of oven, preheat to 350F/175C. Lined a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Whisk yogurt and milk in another small bowl. Sift cocoa powder in another bowl and whisk in honey and boiling water until smooth. Cool completely.
  3. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter in a medium bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 egg at a time, occasionally scraping down sides of the bowl. Add cooled mixture, stir until smooth, occasionally scraping down bowl. Beat in flour mixture alternately with yogurt/sour cream mixture in 2 additions each until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Transfer batter to prepared pans, smooth top and bake until tester inserted comes out clean, about 1 hour.
My Note : I use half of the recipe and 6.5" x 3" x 2.5" loaf pan. Bake 175c about 1 hour.

    2. 嗨 Esther,
      我太喜欢你家的浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕!
      请问什么是kosher salt? 你用哪个牌子的unsweetened cocoa powder?

      Delete
    3. Aunty Young, 早安。谢谢你喜欢这蛋糕。Kosher salt 是海盐,你可以选择用普通的食盐。我用的unsweetened cocoa powder 是在烘焙店买的,包装上注明US Importer cocoa powder。
