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
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.
