Black Walnut Pound Cake

This is another one of Mama's recipes that she made notes on and saved them for me. This one is Grandmama Bradham's Black Walnut Pound Cake.

1 pound 10X Sugar
¾ pound Butter
6 large Eggs
1 t Vanilla
1 T Black Walnut Extract
1 cup Black Walnuts
3 cups Flour
2 T Flour

Cream butter and sugar until light. Add and beat in one egg at a time. Add flour one third at a time. Add vanilla and walnut extract. Fold in the walnuts. Bake in a tube pan. Pan should be greased or lined with brown paper in the bottom. Bake 1 hour and 20 minutes at 325. Let cool about 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool and spread with Cream Cheese Icing.

Note: Grandmama Bradham made this and served it with Cream Cheese Icing…

Cream Cheese Icing:
Whip 1 package Cream Cheese with 1 t Vanilla and about ½ box of 10X Sugar until smooth.
