Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until each is incorporated before adding the next. Add the cooled, melted chocolate and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt.

Add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk, starting and ending with dry. Beat only until just combined to avoid developing the glutens.

Place in a greased, floured tube pan. Bake for 90 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and immediately wrap in foil to lock in the moisture. When cool to the touch, place in the refrigerator and chill for several hours or overnight. Serve cold with whipped cream or plain.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Jackie (Mrs. Alan) Dockery. He was a rancher who did cattle work all over the country and had as one of his clients, Amanda Blake who played "Miss Kitty" on the long-running western television show "Gunsmoke." The Dockery's built a large ranch-style home at the very end of 9th street on the sand hill. They had a swimming pool and I would alternate between Neit Zimmerman's and Jackie's pools during the summer. I ran into Jackie in the late 1980s at an HEB in San Antonio. I didn't recognize her and she made me guess who she was. Don't ever do that to anyone. I asked her if she was Charlotte Knaggs who would have been about 100 by then. There's no good way out of a situation like that.
