This is a 1950s recipe from my hometown in Southern Indiana. It is delicious served warm without frosting. If you prefer frosting, I would suggest just using a glaze.

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla

Cream shortening and sugar together; add the eggs and beat well. Mix and sift together flour and baking powder and add alternately with milk. Stir in the nuts mixed with one teaspoon of flour. Add the vanilla. Bake in a greased loaf pan in a moderate oven (350) 45-50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes in pan and then turn out on cooling rack.
