Chocolate pound cake
In my endless search for a breakfast treat, I came across this recipe on my book by Iginio Massari: a chocolate pound cake.
The pound cake, as you might already know, is traditionally made of one pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar. This recipe almost follows the standard recipe, but of course the addition of chocolate slightly changes the ratios.
What I liked about this recipe is the texture: a very soft and spongy cake with somewhat crunchy chocolate chunks (I think I could eat everything with chocolate chunks!). 😛
|240g||Eggs (4 eggs)|
|150g||Chocolate chips (or coarsely chopped chocolate)|
- If you scale the recipe, you should change the baking time and temperature:
- Up to 300g of batter: bake at 180° for 30 minutes
- Up to 600g of batter: bake at 170° for at least 40 minutes
- There are many liquid ingredients in the recipe: make sure you add them gradually without making the batter lumpy or too liquid
