How to make it

  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks one at a time, beating very well after each addition.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, spices. Add alternately with the brandy to the creamed mixture. Mix well. It could look curdled at this point, don't worry, keep beating.
  • Blend in chopped pecans. Beat egg whites till stiff. Fold into batter.
  • Pour into greased floured bundt or tube pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Test with cake tester.
  • Cool in pan for 15 minutes, turn out on wire rack and cool completely.
  • Sprinkle heavily with powdered sugar.

    Yum! I love a good pound cake! I bet this would be good using plum brandy, too, don't you think?
