Chocolate Chip Pound Cake with Chocoholic Frosting and Topped with Walnuts

I know that everyone is packing to have a great weekend...I decided to enjoy this weekend just by staying in home..Since I am overwhelmed by diwali, Man I need some Rest..

Its raining over here,I love this climate specially because we can bundle up ourselves with our favorite blanket and watch movies or any shows..And also this is the perfect time to make dishes which makes you warm like soups, stews and all kind of stuffs..I planned to make some chicken soup,but was too tired to make it now..I will probably make it somewhere tomorrow..Oh my Goodness I am craving for it now..

Today’s dinner was pretty good..Its getting really cold here and just now had some crispy hot dosa with allam chutney and it was so comforting..

Now back to the recipe...Its been a while since I made this cake,so I decided to post it today..Actually I made this cake for my sister Birthday party..And she loved it..

I halved the recipe to make a mini cake for us alone..But the recipe which I have given is perfect for you all...I felt really bad later thinking why I halved the recipe,because it was so delicious and I didn’t get enough to eat..

Another Good News is my sister took a small piece to school the next day and every one loved it...And one of her friend ordered this cake from me and I made it for her..

So hope you love it and off you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..
