CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE

3 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
1 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 sticks (2 cups) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
8 large eggs
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
confectioners' sugar for sifting over cake if desired

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 3-quart bundt pan, knocking
out excess flour. (Alternatively, use two 1-quart bundt pans and
2 pint-size loaf pans, 6 by 3 by 2 inches.)

Into a bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, and salt.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and
granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and add
eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. With mixer on
low speed, beat in flour mixture gradually until just combined.
Beat in espresso mixture and pour batter into prepared pan(s).

Bake cake in 3-quart pan in middle of oven until a tester comes
out clean, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Cool cake in pan on a rack 10
minutes and turn out onto rack to cool completely.

Pound cake keeps, wrapped well in plastic, 1 week.

Just before serving, sift confectioners' sugar evenly over cake.
