Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake

~another Paula Deen chocolate recipe

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

3 cups sugar

6 eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups cake flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup cocoa

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 inch bundt pan.

Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add eggs two at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and cocoa. Add one half of flour mixture to creamed mixture, beat well, add remaining half of flour mixture, and continue to beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Do not open the oven while baking!

*This is a decent chocolate pound cake recipe. After a day or so it was fairly dry though. Still tasty, but a glass of milk was a necessity.
