The holidays are upon us and we start baking up a storm. We also bake for our neighbors and hand out holiday gifts each year. I thought that this year I would adapt my Grandmother’s Famous Pound Cake recipe into a fun holiday version. When the weather turns we love hot cocoa so why not bake up a few mini loaves of Hot Cocoa Pound Cake for a fun treat. There is a lot of dessert being passed around the holidays. There is something so fun about baking these hot cocoa pound cakes in mini tins for sharing.
Obviously if you are not giving this pound cake as a gift, you can bake the recipe in a 9×3 loaf pan and just adjust the bake time.
The hot cocoa pound cake recipe begins with all the traditional ingredients of a pound cake, butter, sugar and cake flour. By adding 4 packets of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate into the batter you have taken the recipe into a new dimension.
Just look at the cocoa color.
This recipe filled four mini loaf pans and can easily be doubled. In fact, I halved the original recipe of my grandmothers.
Once they are completely cooled you can make a yummy chocolate glaze where I added a little more Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate.
Drizzle the glaze on top of the pound cake and top with a few mini marshmallows for a great hot cocoa pound cake presentation.
We wrapped our pound cake up and added a little wooden spoon as a name tag to give as gifts.
Of course we had to try the hot cocoa pound cake before we gave them away. Be sure to top each slice with a dollop of Reddi-Wip®. Did you know that Reddi-Wip® is made from Real Cream and it’s just about as fun to top desserts with it as it is to eat it.
