How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream butter and shortening until fluffy. (This is not diet friendly folks)
- Add brown sugar gradually, creaming it with the mixer until it is thoroughly incorporated and very light.
- Add the white sugar the same way.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition.
- Sift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowls.
- Combine milk and vanilla.
- Alternately add dry ingredients and wet ingredients to the butter/sugar/egg mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
- Mix only enough to blend.
- Fold in the cup of nuts. (you can subsitute macadamia or cashews for a taste variation, but I like pecans best.)
- Pour into a very well-lubed and floured 10 inch tube pan and bake for 75 to 90 minutes.
- This cake must be tested carefully at the 75 minute mark, and cook in five minute increments up to the maximum of 90 minutes.
- I use an uncooked piece of spaghetti to test a deep cake, a toothpick won't do.
- Make sure the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and it will spring back lightly when touched.
- Loosen cake from the sides of the pan and center tube using a thin-bladed spatula or flexible knife blade.
- Invert on a cooking rack to cool.
- Serve with praline sauce.
- To make praline sauce, bring evaporated milk, brown sugar to a boil.
- Reduce heat and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and pecans.
- Allow to cool slightly before serving.
