Italian Pound Cake
This chocolate cake is a favorite of Cristiana Magnani, the friend of Lorenza who is a doctor and came to dinner when we were visiting in Reggio in September of 2002.
It is dense and delicious and Cristiana works out regularly just to manage her sweet tooth and be able to eat this flourless cake. Her husband Franco is retired so he enjoys the fruits of her labor as well. She also makes a mean orange marmalade.
This recipe was featured on Season 14 - Episode 1406.
Very good. Took this to a family thanksgiving and it was the first desert to go. Tasty and light. Just the right after dinner treat.
First time try, very tasty. Baked 30 minutes. Guests requested I make it again. Springform pan was helpful.
