Cream Cheese Pound Cake by Southern Living...Tweaked...

This Pound Cake is soooooo good, it has a velvety texture and is very moist. I decided to tweak it a bit and make half chocolate....wow....it is good!!!

(To cut the cost of making this cake I use 2 sticks of margarine and 1/2 cup of shortening) I know margarine is supposed to be the devil right now but I still use it to help keep our food budget down, I grew up eating it and I haven't died yet.

This is my favorite pound cake!

Southern Living's Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe - Food.com - 322805

Variation…1/2 chocolate 1/2 vanilla

1/2 cup Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
4 tablespoons heavy cream (I keep it for my coffee, you could probably sub canned milk)
1 cup chopped pecans

Add ingredients to half of the batter and stir well. I weighed the batter and 2 pounds would be half. Put the plain batter in the pan first and top with the chocolate batter and bake as above.

That looks so good it has to be evil. I need to find a pot luck to attend so I can bring this and get away with just eating a small piece.
