My mom used to make this chocolate pound cake and an orange pound cake every Christmas. I still make them some years. Usually I alternate between the two, but the chocolate has always been my favorite.
Chocolate Pound Cake
½ lb. margarine (or butter)
5 eggs
3 C. flour
½ C. cocoa
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 C. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 C. sugar
Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Sift together flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder. Add together alternately with milk. Stir in vanilla. Bake in a 325º oven for 1 ½ hours. Use greased and floured tube pan. You can use cocoa to dust the greased tube pan instead of flour for a chocolate cake.
