  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate melted and cooled
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Grease and lightly flour a 10-inch tube pan. Set pan aside.
  • In a very large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add milk, butter, and cooled chocolate. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat 2 minutes more. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Use a knife to cut a zigzag pattern through batter to break up any large air bubbles.
  • Bake in a 350 degree F for 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove cake from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
