Chocolate Pound Cake

This is delicious. I remember my mom making it for Easter several times growing up and I have continued the tradition on several occasions. It’s really good pretty much any time though. Don’t forget an ice cold glass of milk to go with it.

1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream together the butter and shortening. Add sugar and eggs. Sift dry ingredients together and add vanilla. Add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Bake in a 10-inch tube pan at 325 degrees for about 80 minutes.
