Dewishus chocolate pound cake…

I'll try to get better pictures in different lighting tomorrow. First time I used this pan, and all the trees came out in one piece! Woot!

A bonus Christmas picture, because I have been feeling humbuggy:

    When you post the other pictures of the cake, can you link to the recipe, too, please? If it's dewishus, I might have to try it.

  2. Here's the recipe–it's from Treasured Recipes of the Charleston Cake Lady by Teresa Pregnall, but there's many recipes from it posted here (the Pineapple Pound Cake is really good too).
    This recipe makes a lot and a lot of batter, enough for a cake and a half if you have a regular sized (10 cup) bundt pan. The recipe says to cool the cake in the pan for an hour, but I think that's too long by half.
    Chocolate Pound CakeMakes 22 large slices
    3 cups all purpose flour1/2 tsp baking powder1/2 cup dutch processed cocoa1/4 tsp salt1 1/2 cups sweet butter or margarine, softened3 cups granulated sugar5 large eggs1 1/4 cups milk1 tsp vanilla extractDo not preheat the oven. Grease and flour a 12 cup tube pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt. Set aside.In a large mixing bowl, beat the margarine and sugar on low speed until fluffy, about 8-9 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the dry ingredients alternately with the milk. After each addition, scrape the bowl with a spatula so that all the ingredients are well distributed. Beat in the vanilla extract.
    Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan in a cold oven and set the oven temperature to 325º. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for at least 1 hour before removing to a cake rack to cool for at least 3 hours longer.
