Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe

Time for another mouth-watering recipe.  This time I’m baking a cake. A Chocolate Pound Cake to be exact. It was an opportunity for me to not only use my little RV Oven, but to also get a chance to use my Kitchenaid Mixer my sweet hubby got me.  I wasn’t sure if I would like the mixer or not, but after using it a couple of times, I wondered why it took me so long to get one.
