Triple Chocolate Pound Cake


For the cake:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup buttermilk
For the glaze:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped


"Make the cake: Heat oven to 325° F. Butter a 14-cup Bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium-high until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the melted chocolate and chocolate syrup.

Reduce mixer speed to low. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions and the buttermilk in 2 additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.

Mix just until combined (do not overmix).

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 60 to 75 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Make the glaze: In a small saucepan, bring the cream just to a boil. Remove from heat, add the chopped chocolate, and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth; let cool until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.

Set the wire rack with the cooled cake over a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle the cake with the glaze and let set before serving, 20 to 30 minutes.
