    I just made this and it looks wonderful. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a bundt pan (took an extra 20-30 minutes). I then topped it with a chocolate glaze (search for awsome chocolate glaze, this site [spelled that way]). Photo above. This is my birthday cake for ME and I will take it to work tomorrow to share.

    Dark Chocolate Pound Cake is all I need to see and I am running toward it. I probably consume three times the national average in dark chocolate!!
    Thank you for posting this gem of a recipe.
