My mechanic did me a very good turn recently, so I wanted to thank him—naturally, with cake! Asking him his fave, he said pound cake, so I wanted to make him regular and chocolate. Actually, I wanted to make him regular and whoopie pies, but I was outvoted on this one—which worked-out for the best!
I was going to make the All American Chocolate Butter Cake as a bread to go with the pound cake, but a close and wonderful friend suggested that I make the Chocolate Bread (chocolate pound cake). I pooh-poohed her as too similar to regular pound cake. She suggested (read: “harassed me about”) it again, this time, reinforcing her advice with logic. I paraphrase: “Did he or did he not say pound cake?” Well, he did, so I made both and decided to give him the prettiest chocolate cake along with the regular pound cake. Of course, I made extra for the freezer!
In the end, he got the Perfect Pound Cake and the Chocolate Bread, and what was his favorite? The Dark Horse—The Chocolate Bread! Which just goes to show ya’, a good friend’s advice is always worth serious consideration!
Posting pics of each below with notes, in case you’re interested in cake-specific info!
I love the pound cake you baked,
