“This rich, supremely chocolatey, moist pound cake is so simple and yet so impressive, especially when frosted with my Salted Caramel Frosting, which perfectly complements the dense sweetness of the cake. If you have any leftovers, don't refrigerate, just leave tightly covered at room temperature.”

Directions

  1. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl for five minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  2. Dissolve coffee granules in hot water, combine with buttermilk, set aside.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder; add alternately with buttermilk to creamed mixture, beating just until blended. Pour batter into a greased and floured Bundt or tube pan.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the cake tests done. Remove from oven and cool 20 minutes, then remove from pan.
  5. Cool completely before frosting, or sprinkling with confectioners' sugar.
  6. NOTE: to make a buttermilk substitute, add 1 tablespoon vinegar to a measuring cup, add milk until it reached the 1 cup mark. Let stand for 5 minutes, and use as buttermilk!
