"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a chocolate variation of the very popular pound cake. Note that the recipe adds a "b" to milk which would indicate buttermilk instead of regular milk. It could be that Ms. Coleman added it, or that Lois added it later. Either buttermilk or sweet milk should work. This cake most probably starts in a cold oven since preheating is not mentioned. Ms. Coleman signed and dated this card. The date was 9/6/93.
