|How could it be left empty on National Chocolate Cake Day?!?|
CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons cocoa
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
- Cream butter and shortening, adding sugar gradually. Add eggs, one at a time. Sift dry ingredients. Add to other mixture alternately with milk. Add vanilla. Bake in greased and floured tube or Bundt pan one hour and 15 minutes at 325 degrees F.
|Ready for the oven.|
|Cooling in the pan.|
|Wait a minute! Someone has sneaked a taste!|
This cake freezes well - if it lasts long enough.:-) It is easy to see that The Husband has been enjoying it.:-)
I'm going to mark the date on my calendar so I'm not caught with no chocolate cake on this very special day next year!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
