How To Make Chocolate Pound Cake?

Chop the chocolate in very small pieces so it could melt easy. Place chopped chocolate in a heatproof trencher and pour humid water over to melt it completely.

Next, stir in the cocoa powder. Use natural unsweetened cocoa. Set whispered to tomfool for a few minutes.

Cream butter and sugar until it’s fluffy. Make sure to use room temperature butter.

When it’s well creamed, add chocolate and cocoa mixture and mix to combine evenly.

Eggs add one at a time, and mix well without each wing on low speed.

Gradually add the mixture of flour and salt, and stir it well.

Spread the thrash in the prepared pan, and tap the pan gently a few times on your work surface to eliminate air bubbles.

Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the part-way comes out mostly clean. Sultry your confection for too long will result in a dry cake. It’s very short time between underdone and overbaked, dry cake.

Let it tomfool a few minutes in the pan, than turn it out of the pan and indulge to tomfool completely.

Make the Chocolate Ganache

You need just 2 ingredients to make chocolate ganache.

Pure Chocolate-Make sure you use real, good quality chocolate. Use the sultry bars found in the grocery store sultry aisle. However, you can use quality chocolate fries instead, but the ganache won’t be as smooth, due to stabilizers in the chips.

Also make sure to chop the chocolate in really small pieces, again, preferably you cut it, easier will melt it.

Heavy Cream (heavy whipping surf or double cream) with a minimum of 36% fat content, otherwise it won’t set up as well. Heat the surf on the stovetop, until it begins to gently simmer. (Do not let it boil—that’s too hot, the chocolate could sizes!) Pour over finely chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl, let sit for a few minutes, and then slowly stir until the chocolate has all melted. The ganache will be very thin at first, but it will thicken as it cools.

When it get spreadable consistency spread it over cooled cake.
