My grams made this cake when I was small and it has always been my mom’s favorite cake. Best with fudge icing
Western Pound Cake
3 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 (4 ounce) bar sweet chocolate, grated
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the cake flour. Sift together remaining flour and baking powder. Set aside.
2 Toss the chocolate and walnuts with reserved 1 tablespoon of flour. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate and walnuts.
3 Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting.
