2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup plus 2 tbsp unsweetened Dutch process medium cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanila extract
2 tsp espresso extract (or subsitutre 2 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 tsp buttermilk)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, cream the butter on medium speed. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Beating at medium spped, add the eggs one by one, beating only until they are well blended.

Beating on low speed, add a third of the flour mixture and a third of the buttermilk. Do this twice more with the remaining dry ingredients and buttermilk, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula in between. Finally, beat the batter on medium speed for 30 seconds, until it is smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. bake the cake for 50-60 minutes.



Hello PinkLisa.

Just a few questions about the recipe you've listed up above. Obviously you're US based, so I'm guessing the measurements are imperial cups/tbl/tsp and not the metric cups/tbl/tsp.

Also, given the suggestions of the thin tin and reducing the temp (which has an affect of increasing the cooking time) I"m wondering what temp you would be dropping to.

I have attempted this car twice now with different cakes, but only noticed this forum after the second failed attempt. Both have failed to cook fully through in the centre.

So, a 160C oven for about 80 minutes?

Suggestions would be welcome

HI,
I've made the car cake quite a few times now with a dense chocolate cake repipe (sorry, but it was given to me by someone who made me promise not to give it out), I tried the train cake with the Hershey's chocolate cake recipe (which is also delicious) but it did not hold up well so now I always use the chocolate one as I find that kids prefer that as pound cake can be quite heavy.
As per what has already been said you need to bump up your oven temp to 175C (that's what I use), also you can buy a heating core (Wiltons and other baking supply stores have them) as that will ensure the even baking of a pan like the car bc of the uneven shape.
HTH

Hi pinklisa
I was just about to make this cake but as I was reading through the recipe I noticed that in the ingredients list there are no eggs listed but in the recipe it states to add eggs one at a time. Could you please reply with the correct number of eggs to add? I would really love to give this recipe a try!
Thanks, it would be greatly appreciated!

Your recipe says to add eggs, however the recipe ingredients does not include eggs.  How many does your pound cake need?
