Chocolate Pound Cake

A few days back I stopped by a friend's house (after my therapy) to pick up my daughter who had stayed there for the afternoon. Becky had chocolate pound cake, a cup of tea, and a relaxing chair all waiting for me! She generously shared her recipe for this moist and delicious cake with me, and now I'm passing it along to you -- my bog readers!
 Chocolate Pound Cake
1 and 1/2 cups butter
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
5 eggs
1/4 cup coffee
1 cup sour milk
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Beat first 3 ingredients 5 minutes
Add eggs and beat again
Dissolve 2 tsp. instant coffee in 1/4 cup water.
(I just used 1/4 cup perked coffee since I don't have instant)
Combine dry ingredients
Alternate dry ingredients with coffee and milk till blended.
Pour into greased bundt pan
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes
