The ultimate chocolate pound cake
- 3 stick
- butter,( softened )
- 3 c.
- real vanilla( or vanilla bean paste )
- eggs, ( fresh brown, preferably)
- 2 tsp.
- instant coffee granules
- 1/4 c.
- boiling water
- 2 c.
- all purpose flour, unsifted
- 3/4 c.
- cocoa, unsweetened
- 1/4 tsp.
Bake in 325° oven for 1hr. And 15-20 minutes.
Usually 1 hr and 15 min..
When it comes out of the oven , wait about 5 minutes..run a knife around all edges, and very carefully invert onto serving plate..
All you need to make this complete is a tall glass of milk( not for me ) , a good cup of coffee, or hot cup of tea..
If ya can't wait( none of us can) just dig in as soon as you've inverted it into plate..ENJOY..!!
Actually, who am I kidding.. We don't even wait for it to cool down..
I would love to try some kind of frosting w/this..but as long as my hubby is still alive and has anything to say about it..it's not gonna happen..lol
You know what they say.."DONT MESS WITH A GOOD THING!"
I had enough white sugar for 1 cup..so to that I added 2 cups of brown sugar..
And I had maybe about a 1/3 cup of cocoa ... So I added the remainder of the 3/4 cup it called for w/chocolate fudge pudding( instant )
Both ways were scrumptious ..but the original is best..:)
