Chocolate Pound Cake

The best pound cakes are made with butter. Since you aren’t eating meat anyway, this is your chance to make a special, simple yet rich, weeknight dessert.

3 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1-3/4 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream together sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in flour, cocoa and baking powder. Pour into greased 12-cup Bundt pan. Bake for about 1-1/2 hours. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely. You can serve alone, dusted with powdered sugar, with a dollop of (real!) whipped cream or with some fresh berries.

If you’re in the mood for more chocolate, this cake is worth trying even though it isn’t dairy!
