Make This!!

This is soooo good. I found this recipe in the Oregonian Food Day section when Nas was a baby. I've made it several times and it never lasts more than a day. It is very good and very delicious.

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

2 1/3 c brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter - room temp
1/2 vegetable shortening
6 eggs
3 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts - optional

Preheat oven to 300*. Grease a 9-inch tube pan. Cover the bottom with foil to prevent leaks.

Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter & shortening in a bowl and beat until light & creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder & salt. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture, alternating with the milk until just blended. Stir in vanilla and optional walnuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared tube pan and smooth the top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean, about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Don't open the oven door for the first hour.
