My son wanted a chocolate cake, so I modified my favorite pound cake recipe into a chocolate one by subbing in some cocoa powder for part of the flour. This recipe always makes a bit too much for my bundt pan, so I always bake some batter in my tiny, 4-inch springform pan- that cake becomes the birthday person's personal cake. If you don't have a tiny pan, making 2 or 3 cupcakes should do the trick.
