1 cup plus 2 tablespoons soft butter or margarine
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Additional powdered sugar

Grease two 7-inch fluted savarin pans, (small bundts can be used). Sprinkle with fine breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 400F.
Cream butter or margarine and granulated sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in milk.

Sift flour with baking powder. Carefully fold into creamed mixture. Divide batter into 2 equal portions.
Divide 1 portion between prepared pans. Sift cocoa and powdered sugar together and fold into remaining portion.
