A Little Bit Of Heaven....

I'm positive that when I get to Heaven, all they are going to serve me to eat is raw chocolate pound cake batter.

It's like a party in your mouth. ( I actually had another saying in mind, but it was just way too adult-oriented to put up here.)

I got the recipe from this Site!

Chocolate Pound Cake Recipe

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon instant coffee dissolved in a few drops boiling water.

Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing between additions. Add flour mixture and evaporated milk alternately and mix well.(*The original instructions don't tell exactly how to do this so this is what I do: I add 1/3 flour mixture, one-half of the evap. milk, 1/3 flour mixture, one-half of the evap. milk, 1/3 flour mixture.) Add vanilla & coffee and mix well. Pour batter into a greased and floured** 10-inch tube pan. Bake for 1 hour and 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

Dust with confectioners sugar OR ice with your favorite Chocolate Glaze or Frosting.

Even easier: they now have cheesecake filling already made. It comes in little plastic tubs, in with the butter and cheese at the grocery store.

Screw the crust, just eat it out of the tub straight.

Wait, you were on a diet. Forget I said anything. :-D

BTW- This cake really doesn't need any frosting- maybe just a dusting of confectioners sugar or a VERY thin glaze or ganache.... take my word for it.
