Chocolate Pound Cake is an old-fashioned frugal recipe. It’s luscious, buttery and incredibly delicious!

I also love how this recipe is versatile. You can dust it with sugar, top with frosting or ganache. You can also eat it plain with fruits – whatever floats your boat. Best of all – it freezes beautifully!
