Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake

I love this pound cake, it not too oily and dense. I agreed with Zoe that this pound cake give a nicely balanced with texture and taste too. I reduced the recipe as I left a small amount of sour cream just enough for 2 eggs portion.

Recipe source from 'Bake For Happy Kids'-Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake (Paula Deen).
