Kentucky Pound Cake



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 likes to tell the story of coming home late from work 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 cake top to the cake plate the first thing that I noticed wouldn't be the missing piece of cake! 

Kentucky Pound Cake


1 1/2 cups of cooking oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. hot water
2 1/2 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 that has been sprayed with Baker's Joy cooking spray. 

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hr. 15 min.

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