Description

My mom made this cake for every gathering. It’s an older recipe and is a sweet pound-like cake made without butter, thus the “poor man’s” title. The top gets a crisp crackled golden brown crust and the inside is tender. An oldie but goodie!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 cups White Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1-½ cup Vegetable Shortening
  • 6 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Finely Crushed Walnuts

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat for 5 minutes until well mixed. Pour batter into a lightly greased and floured tube pan. Bake approximately 70 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Cool cake on a cooling rack then flip out of the pan. Best served at room temperature or slightly chilled.
