Chocolate Pound Cake

Can you say C*H*O*C*O*L*A*T*E?  It's cake time at the Phillips' house again. The chocolate chip pound cake was such a hit with the husband and kids, I decided to go with pound cake again.  This time it's chocolate through and through.... inside and out!  I have already sampled the first piece (plus I licked the bowl... shame on me!), and it is YUMMY!  It is very rich though, so you are fore-warned.  Enjoy this little piece of chocolate heaven!

 note:  By the looks of the picture, I probably could have used less icing, but OH WELL!  The kids love it.

Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Glaze Icing

 Chocolate Pound Cake

3 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla sugar

1 ½ cup butter, softened

5 eggs

2 ½ cups cake flour

¾ cup cocoa

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

½ cup milk

½ cup sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Grease and flour cake pan.

Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.

Mix butter with regular and vanilla sugar till light and fluffy. This will take a few minutes.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one.

Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk and condensed milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.

Pour into pan and bake  for approximately an hour.  At one hour, I turned my oven down to 300 and backed another 15 minutes. 
Cool 10 minutes or so in the pan, then turn out on a wire rack to cool.  Add icing if you desire.
