Chocolate Pound Cake (question just for fun)
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
What an interesting question!
My guess is if the old school (1:1:1:1) pound cake ratio can be extrapolated out as:
---4 parts flour: 4 parts butter: 4 parts eggs: 4 parts sugar
and a standard brownie ratio could be written out as
---5 parts flour: 4 parts butter: 4 parts eggs: 8 parts sugar: 3 parts unsweetened chocolate
a recipe that goes
---4 parts flour: 4 parts butter: 4 parts eggs: 4 parts sugar: 4 parts semi-sweet chocolate
would get you something along the lines of a heavy brownie rather than a pound cake, particularly since you'd have to use the melting method rather than the creaming method.
I'd love to know if you try it out, though!
