Chocolate pound cake and the Foodie Blogroll~

Yesterday I wanted something sweet. I've had a cold for the past few days and couldn't go to work on Wednesday, so I needed some cheering up. Nothing says "get better!" like Chocolate cake. With cheesecake filling. And streusel toping.

Okay, so I took the recipe for Black and White Pound Cake from Great Coffee Cakes, and instead of turning less than half the batter chocolate, I doubled the stuff you add to the vanilla batter and made most of it chocolate. Most, because I didn't have the stuff to triple it. I than took 8 ounces cream cheese, 1 egg, half cup sugar and beat it all together. I thought I needed something, so I added some of the leftover vanilla batter to it. Then, in a spring form pan I put 2/3 of the chocolate batter, all the cheesecake batter, then the remaining chocolate batter. When it only had 5 minutes left in the oven I put on Carole's chocolate streusel topping. It was a very good cake.

The batter was so good I could eat it like pudding!

Speaking of batter, I had enough leftover for a whole vanilla pound cake! It don't look so pretty, but it tastes good! I took it out 5 minutes later than I wanted do to my scatter brain.

Welcome to the blogroll!

Aw, sorry to hear about the cold! I started making ginger tea when my dad had a cold. I also added a squeeze of fresh lemon.

Your pound cake looks very tasty. The cheesecake filling is a great idea!

My niece is training to be a chef and she is not nearly as creative as you. Well done. The cheesecake is one of the best I have ever seen...

I left you a note on the swedish tea ring and now I figured out who you are. We already discussed this dough over on Egullet. LOL.
