Do us a favour and use the best ingredients there are if u want to get that deep chocolaty cake that u dream of cos this recipe is surely a keeper in my little heart... i heart this recipe to bits!! theres no words that i can describe how delish this cake is.. the moistness... the richness.. the darkness... the ohhhs and ahhhs that i got fm my family especially fm little Sonia was just superb.. Sonia ate two slices in one sitting.. i added a small dollop of chocolate glaze on the side and it tastes even better! chocolate overload lol

Bake it lovelies.. bake it for ur friends... for ur loved ones ok.. better still.. go to ur nearest bookstore and get her book.. Go to the nearest bakery supply shop to get ur Valrhona or Cocoa Berry cocoa powder and welcome urself to the dark side of my life hahaha

Deep Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake
from Tish Boyle’s The Cake Book
1.5 cups (181g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (57g) cake flour
1 cup (92g) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2.25 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.5 cups (340g) unsalted butter, softened
2.5 cups (500g) granulated sugar - i used 430g
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (242g) sour cream
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease the inside of a 10-inch Bundt pan. Dust with flour. - I baked it on the lowest rack for 150C
Sift the flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a bowl of an electric mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter at medium speed until very creamy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in the sugar. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until the mixture is well-blended and light, about 4 minutes. At medium speed, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
In a small bowl, stir the vanilla extract into the sour cream. If your mixer has a splatter shield attachment, attach it now. At the low speed, add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the sour cream mixture in 2 additions and mixing just until blended. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
Bake the cake for 65 to 75 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Then invert the cake onto the rack and let it cool completely.
