Chocolate Pound Cake

 

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
2 Tbsp mini semisweet chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Ribbon
3 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp plain fat-free yogurt
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Batter
1 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. Combine cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla in a food processor and process until smooth.

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Combine yogurt and buttermilk in a small bowl. Reduce speed to low and add half of flour mixture, beating just to combine. Add yogurt mixture, then finish with remaining flour mixture.

Pour half the batter into prepared pan; dollop with cream cheese mixture and swirl layers together with a knife or wooden skewer. Top with remaining batter and smooth with an offset spatula; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and cake springs back to the touch. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; carefully remove cake from pan and cool completely on wire rack. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Merry Meet From The Intermountain West

I’m happy to meet everyone.

I started this journey after being confirmed Lutheran. While participating in confirmation classes we explored many other religious practices. I realized I had more exploring to do. I was only beginning to find my path leading towards my ancestors (Norwegian & Swedish) Gods. It was a slow process, the library was my only resource. My family and friends were all members of  mainstream religions, and not so supportive of my wanting to become pagan.

I eventually found two people who were helpful, but they too had a lack of resources. I was becoming discouraged, and let my search wane.

In the mean time I got married and had two wonderful daughters. I was laid off from my job of 11+ years at Kmart in February of 2012. It was the kick in the pants I needed, I have started a small sewing business. I haven’t done much yet, but thats okay. I have been rehired PT at Kmart, after a year hiatus. In that time I kind of went crazy on the internet.

Now 26 years later having found a plethora of pagans on the internet, and “Magical Circle School”, I am ready to jump back in with both feet. The witches I’ve found so willing to help, and the internet for research, it no longer feels as daunting as it did in the “70’s.

I am looking forward to so many of the classes here. I can hardly wait to complete “The Entrance Exam”.
