German Chocolate Pound Cake
2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 package German Sweet Chocolate (melted)
Cream sugar and shortening.
Add eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.
Sift together flour, soda and salt.
Add German chocolate that has been softened in warm oven or in double boiler.
Blend together well.
Bake in a tube pan that has been lightly greased and lined with wax paper.
(I don’t line it with paper, I just flour the pan after greasing it)
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
DO NOT OVERBAKE.
