chocolate sour cream pound cake with Mom Mom's icing

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Real talk: my mom made this cake.  She used her go-to pound cake recipe, which is fabulous.  I mean, people request that she make this cake.  How often are you thrilled by a pound cake?!  I love it, especially when it's warm.  For a shower, she fancied it up with chocolate icing that her grandmother, Mom Mom, used to make.  I never met Mom Mom; she passed away before I was born.  I hear she made the best fried chicken.  

I am only going to post the icing recipe since my mom said the pound cake is from an old Southern Living recipe.  I try my best to post only original content on my blog.  I cannot find the recipe anywhere on the internet, but send me an email if you want help with a chocolate pound cake.  

Mom usually bakes the cake in a 10 inch tube pan, but I requested that she make it in a bundt pan to pretty it up.  The recipe made this cake + a small loaf pan.  

Mom Mom's chocolate pound cake icing

1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 stick margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 package chocolate chips*

Combine first four ingredients and bring to a boil.  Boil 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add 1/2 package chocolate chips.  Beat until melted.  Ice cake.  

*Mom said she thinks that chocolate chips used to come in 9 ounce packages, so she added 4.5 ounces of chips when she made the icing.  

The pretty shape got a little lost under the icing, but it still tasted great!  

Do you like pound cake?  Have you ever made a pound cake?  What kind?
