This is a delicious chocolate pound cake which is lighter than a typical pound cake. It keeps well and tastes even better the next day.
I made two batches of this cake for my boys birthday cakes. I made it a couple of weeks before (just in case!!). It turned out beautifully, so I froze it until their birthdays. It was absolutely delicious, and I recieved alot of compliments!! It would probably have been easier to make if I wasn't trying to make two batches at once!! It makes quite a large cake too! - 18 Mar 2012
I have tried at least 10 different chocolate bundt cake recipes over the years and this is the best yet!!!!!! Involves a bit more work with beating egg whites, but well worth it! This cake is very moist & the cinnamon gives it a special taste. Simply the best ! - 19 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I thought this was a great cake. I love it when it first comes out of the oven. It has a great chocolate taste, but it's not strong. I did try the cake with a chocolate icing recipe from the back of a package: Hershey's Chocolate Cocoa (for baking), and I added choped almonds. After the cake had time to cool the next day, that was the end of it. Absolutely delicious. The cake was gone in two days. Some reviews I read suggested that the cake was not so much of a pound cake, but more light and springy. If you want more of a pound cake texture, just sift the dry ingredients twice, where it calls for sifting in the recipe, I have tried it that way. - 09 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
