Hershey’s Chocolate Pound Cake

Merry Christmas! I was discussing family Christmas traditions with my friend Pam. She said her mother makes this Hershey’s Chocolate Pound Cake and that they eat it on Christmas morning. Of course, I made it immediately. This made one bundt cake and 4 mini loaves. Next time, I will line the loaf pans with parchment paper. This cake is so moist and delicious, perfect to serve with tea. Thanks Pam!

Grease and flour 3 loaf pans or 1 bundt and 1 loaf pan or 1 large sheet pan. Bake at 300 to 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour. Check with toothpick or finger press after 45 minutes.
