Kentucky Pound Cake

When Phillip and I were dating, the first cake that I made for him was a Kentucky Pound Cake.  My daddy still loves to tell the story of coming home from work late and finding the cake sitting on the kitchen counter.  He knew that I had baked it for Phillip but the aroma tempted his taste buds.  He sliced a piece of cake and enjoyed it with a glass of milk.  He said he then turned the cake plate around, so that when I removed the top to the cake plate the first thing I noticed wouldn't be the missing piece of cake! 

                                                           Kentucky Pound Cake

1 1/2 cups of cooking oil
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. hot water
2 l/2 cups of self-rising flour
1 cup of chopped pecans
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together, except pecans.  Stir in pecans.  Pour into a tube pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hr. 15 min.

Be sure to try a piece of cake with a glass of milk like my daddy did!
