Ingredients

  • 3 1/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    sticks butter, softened

  • 1/2

    cup shortening

  • 3

    cups sugar

  • 5

    eggs

  • 1

    cup evaporated milk

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing between additions. Add flour mixture and evaporated milk alternately and mix well.(*The original instructions don't tell exactly how to do this so this is what I do: I add 1/3 flour mixture, one-half of the evap. milk, 1/3 flour mixture, one-half of the evap. milk, 1/3 flour mixture.) Add vanilla and mix well. Pour batter into a greased and floured** 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
