My youngest son is a chocolate fanatic. I recently made a pound cake and while he tried it, I could tell he wasn’t absolutely enthused about it. Of course, Momma had to find a compromise.
And that’s when I came up with this:
This cake is scrumptious! I didn’t have the proper pan, but we weren’t too bothered by that detail. The icing was simple to make, too, and my children had a great time “icing” our afternoon treat.
To make the icing:
Melt 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate and 1/3 cup of butter in a sauce pan on low heat. Once the chocolate is melted remove from heat and stir in 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Stir in 3-4 Tablespoons of hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until smooth and creamy. Drizzle (or drop as my little ones did) over the warm cake.
