BROWN SUGAR POUND CAKE FROM ALABAMA

This old recipe is from a church in Montgomery, Alabama during the 1950s.

3 sticks butter
1 box brown sugar (1 lb)
1 cup granulated sugar
5 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Cream butter with the brown sugar and the granulated sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time mixing after each addition. Sift the flour and baking powder and add alternately to the sugar mixture with the milk. Add the vanilla and stir in the chopped nuts. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour and 15 minutes.

Note: The recipe doesn't specify the pan for baking. My opinion is a lightly greased tube pan works best.
