Very little effort and you get a dessert that everyone loves and it looks like you’ve been in the kitchen all afternoon preparing it. (It only takes about three minutes.)
6 oz. chopped bittersweet chocolate
1 stick butter, cut up
1 T honey
1 pound cake (we found one already made in our grocer’s bakery)
Microwave chopped bittersweet chocolate with butter and honey on 75 percent power until melted, about 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Place a loaf of pound cake on a rack and drizzle with the glaze.
What did the family think? I am not sure which they enjoyed more…the finished product or the pool of chocolatey goodness that collected underneath the cake…lots of little fingers scooping up the extra chocolate.

One Response to Chocolate Glazed Pound Cake
To turn this recipe into an easy Boston Cream look and taste-alike, whip up a box of vanilla pudding according to the package directions. Slice the ready made pound cake in half so that there is a bottom and a top. Smooth the pudding in the center of the cake, replace the top, and then top with the chocolate glaze. You have to be a bit careful with this step. . .if the chocolate glaze is too hot, it will melt the pudding. (Even easier – substitute ready made chocolate frosting.)
