浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕(Deep Chocolate Pound Cake)

前两天,机缘之下,到访Eshter Lau(Copycake Kitchen)的家,
一眼就看上这超赞的浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕,
今天终于忍不住开炉咯。


或许我家烤炉感染到主人的兴奋,
竟然比主人更热情,
还失控的把这“ 浓郁巧克力磅蛋糕”的皮烤到干脆,
幸好蛋糕体,还是如Esther说般湿润,巧克力味浓郁,
大获安家父女的青睐。


父女俩,甚至还说,
虽然外皮稍微干巴,不过跟湿润,细软的蛋糕体还蛮搭的。
杀是好吃! 好吃!
不骗你,一个放工回来,一个打球回来,
没两下子,就把四份之三个蛋糕给干掉了,
幸好老早把照片给拍好,
不然,只能看到,只有四分之一的蛋糕相罢了。

   

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.


Don't judge the book by the cover. This cake may look dry on the outside but actually it is very moist on the inside.




Both father and daughter like the cake very much. In the blink of an eye, they had finish about 3/4 of the cake. You can see just how good it tastes!



Actually, the cake looks much more attractive when it is fresh from the oven. Unfortunately, it shrank when cooled and looks more dry than it actually is.
