A1A Diner and Brown Sugar Pound Cake

Ok - this weekend in Indiatlantic Beach, FL - there was a little beach diner we went to each morning for breakfast. Cheap (about 5$) and good with healthy options. The above is an egg white veggie omelet with whole wheat toast. The next morning we all had the Baked apple oatmeal - turned out great. We kept talking to the chef - but he wouldn't give us the recipe. So, I created my own after modifying one I found - so I'll post it later in the week.

This Brown Sugar Pound Cake recipe is great. One of the best cakes I've ever eaten. The glaze can be described as a soft divinity glaze. The maker of this cake is Margie Vann, or MeMa called by her grandkids. She was a lady in the church I grew up with that taught us Sunday School, is a great cook, and everything else. She worked at Publix for a long time.

2 sticks butter
1/2 stick crisco
1 box and 1 cup dark brown sugar
5 eggs one a time
1 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 cups flour
1 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla

1 stick butter
1 cup walnuts
1 box powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 tsp milk

Cream butter and crisco. Add in brown sugar and cream. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Put in flour and baking powder 1/3 at a time. Once well mixed, put in milk and vanilla - mix well. Pour in greased and floured 10 in bundt pan. Bake at 325 for 85 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, remove and place on cooling rack to cool completely.
Meanwhile, after caked has cooled, melt butter on stove over medium heat. Put in walnuts, too. Take off heat once melted. Stir in box of powdered sugar, vanilla (or other flavoring of your choice), and milk to consistency that you want. Pour over cake. EAT and ENJOY!
