Cold Oven Brown Sugar Pound Cake Recipe
Cold Oven Brown Sugar Pound Cake
adapted from The Southern Living Community Cookbook
- 1 cup butter, softened
- ½ cup shortening
- 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 6 large eggs
- 3 cups cake flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup canned evaporated milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups chopped pecans
Do not preheat oven! Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt or tube pan.
Beat butter and shortening in a large bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add brown and granulated sugar, beating at high speed for 5 to 7 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating only until the yolk disappears after each egg.
Sift together flour and baking powder. Add to butter mixture in three additions, alternating with evaporated milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Beat batter on low just until blended. Stir in vanilla and pecans.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Place in oven. Set oven temperature to 300 degrees.
Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
