Chocolate Pound Cake + Fudge Glaze

I think it’s pretty much a given that chocolate and Valentines Day go hand in hand!

I can tell you from experience that if you give me chocolate I’ll definitely be your friend! If that chocolate comes in the form of cake….. Well then you just guaranteed yourself a new bff!

This classic chocolate pound cake is perfect for any time of year. The glaze gives it an extra fudgey, rich finishing touch that is absolutely amazing! Top with your favorite berries to add a festive feel and dig in to this dessert with your Valentine!
