  • Southern Living Milk Chocolate Pound Cake -- to swoon over!
    Don't ask me WHY I've never made this fabulous, moist, and entirely leaves-you-speechless cake, but there it is...fact (I'm truly embarrased). Maybe because Million Dollar or Cream Cheese poundcakes are my standby favorite & chocolate ones have never been my preferance. However....I have a 1990 Southern Living Magazine featuring their All Time Best Desserts. I have used, many times over the years, the peach cobbler, Hummingbird cake, pecan pie, Million Dollar poundcake, & coconut cake from this issue. Many of these recipes go back to the mid 70's. Ya'll just have to know, if I had to run out of this house & grab a few things, a folder of my daughter's pictures & things she's made would come along and so would this issue. I'll post the list of recipes in case ya'll want any.

    Here's the one for Milk Chocolate Pound Cake:

    1 cup butter, softened
    1-1/2 cups sugar
    4 eggs
    6 (1.55 ounce) milk chocolate candy bars, melted.
    2-1/2 cups flour
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    Pinch salt
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
    1 (5-1/2 ounce) can chocolate syrup
    2 tsp vanilla

    Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed. Add eggs one by one, beating well after each addition. Add melted candy bars. Mix together flour, soda, & salt & add alternately w/buttermilk, beginning & ending w/dry until just blended. Add syrup, vanilla, & pecans (if using). Bake in greased/floured tube pan at 325 for 1 hour 15 minutes or until springy when touched. Cool 15 minutes in pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar is desired.

    I didn't use nuts & I used Hershey chocolate bars & syrup (I got a 6 pack of milk chocolate bars at Walmart; it's cheaper than buying 6 at the register). I also used the can of syrup although the ingredients are the same as their squeeze bottle of syrup used for chocolate milk, sundaes, etc.

    Divine. Sneak some when it's warm & put some ice cream with it. Or not.
