I have gotten a lot of requests for recipes in the past, but this is the one cake that I am asked to make most often. Its just a good old fashioned chocolate pound cake that is sublime on its own, but when you add my Grandmother’s fudge icing, it becomes a favorite to all.
Have you ever had your granny make one of those cakes that when she cut into it, the icing cracked and broke off in huge fudgey chunks? THIS is THAT icing! In a future tutorial, I’ll show you how to make peanut butter boiled icing too!
If, after reading this and seeing the photo of the cake, you are still hesitant about whether or not you’d like it, just look at the ingredient list. Honestly, with this much butter, sugar, and cocoa, how could it NOT taste good?
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour your pan. What I do is fold a paper towel, put it over my hand and dip into the shortening, then smear it all around. Take a but of flour and pour into the pan and move your pan around, patting it a bit, to get the flour to coat the sides. Discard the loose flour.
