Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter - softened
  • 1 cup superfine sugar (granulated is fine)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs - room temperature
  • 2/3 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • Zest and juice of 1 small orange
  • 1/4 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups sifted powdered sugar

Directions

  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 325°F.

  2. 2

    Place flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

  3. 3

    In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Stir in almond cashew milk and vanilla until just combined.

  4. 4

    Pour dry mixture into wet mixture and stir together until fully combined. Fold in chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 9”x5” loaf pan.

  5. 5

    Bake pound cake for 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the pound cake.

  6. 6

    Remove from the oven and allow the loaf to cool completely before removing from the loaf pan.

  7. 7

    For the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, almond milk and vanilla. Begin whisking in powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until all the sugar has been used and the glaze is thick and smooth. Fold in the zest until just combined.

  8. 8

    Pour the glaze over the pound cake and let it sit for about 20 minutes, to allow the glaze to harden. Slice and serve.
