GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM POUND CAKE

It's SINFUL I tell you SINFUL as in BAD to the BONE...BaBaBaBaaaaad...I've made other chocolate pound cake recipes in my time and they were all of course delicious but this one here, so to speak, is by far the best like ever!
It is moist and chocolaty and rich as R. Stuart Dickson (that's my boss man). So you know it's got to be good...no not just good...it's GREAT in a real big way. The only way you are going to know it is to make one for yourself.
2 sticks real butter-room temp
3 cups sugar
6 big eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (use a whisk to get it mixed up good)
1/2 cup Ghirardelli Natural Unsweetened Cocoa powder
1 cup heavy whipping cream (heavy is an important step here)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
 Beat the butter at medium speed in a stand electric mixer until mixture is creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition just until the yellow disappears. Combine flour and cocoa; add to butter mixture alternately with the heavy whipping cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch bundt or tube pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to rest on top of the stove for 10 minutes then remove to a plate. Allow to cool completely (unless my husband is hanging around).
