A luscious, rich, chocolate pound cake made with Baker’s German’s sweet Chocolate. Enjoy this chocolate treat with the yummy powdered sugar frost and sweet chocolate glaze!
Happy days! I found Grandma Cash’s recipe for German’s Chocolate Pound Cake in her recipe collection. Complete with a lovely chocolate glaze recipe. And while I was making it I learned about German’s chocolate! I always thought German Chocolate came from Germany. Imagine my surprise to find German Chocolate is actually named after the man who created it, Samuel German, rather than Germany! Here’s a link to the Wiki-pedia article I found that explains the history of German’s Chocolate
About this recipe:
This recipe I am giving you is made from Baker’s German sweet chocolate. I didn’t have sweet chocolate on hand so I used Baker’s unsweetened chocolate and added sugar until it was just barely sweet. This recipe is probably best when made as directed with the German sweet chocolate. What I did turned out great though.
German’s Chocolate Pound Cake is very good! But this is a pound cake so make this rich, heavy cake and eat it up in a day or so. My hubby loved it even after three days, but it was getting a bit dry by then.
After this pretty cake was baked, I decided to give it a powdered sugar frost. My mom told me to use a doily to make a pretty outline on my bundt cakes for fun. Well… that didn’t go so well. I really need more experience in that technique. So I just coated the cake with an even powdered sugar frost and poured the chocolate glaze over the top. It turned pretty and romantic and tasted great!
