  • 1 c whole milk
  • 11/2 c butter
  • 5 T cocoa
  • 11/2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking powder

What you do:

    into creamed ingredients while mixing on low speed with hand
    mixer.  Sift flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt together.  With
    the mixer on low, add small amounts of the sifted ingredients,
    then milk, alternating until all ingredients are used up, and
    making sure you end with the sifted ingredients.  Add vanilla and

    preheated 325 degree oven for 80 - 90 minutes, or until a
    toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let cool for
    15 minutes before removing from pan.
