I named this after my husband because this is my husband's favorite chocolate dessert. He always lends a hand to help make it, which makes the task easier. It does take a few minutes to put all the ingredients together, but well worth the time! My mom always made great cakes by following the directions as posted in this recipe. Spend the extra time mixing the ingredients and use room temp butter, milk, eggs, etc. for the best cakes.

How to Make Rick's Chocolate Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream shortening, butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs one-at-a-time, beating after each one is added.
  3. Sift together the flour and baking powder and add to wet ingredients alternating with the milk.

  8. Icing: 1 8 0z. pack of cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 4 tablespoons (or more) milk, 1 box of powered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa. Mix all ingredients well. Ice cooled cake.
