Maple Nut Cake

Some of the best recipes you find come from the packages of products.  This little oval card looks like it was trimmed from a package of some sort, or was possibly included in the packaging.  It is from Royal Baking Powder.  Lots of good ideas from this group!  I have a couple of their cook books from many moons ago, and I enjoy looking through them now and then.

Maple Nut Cake

Cream 1/3 cup shortening with 1 cup light brown sugar; add 2 egg yolks; mix well and add 3/4 cup milk; sift together 1 1/2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 level teaspoons Royal Baking Powder and add; mix in 1 cup finely chopped nuts – preferably pecans – and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Bake in a greased loaf pan in moderate oven 35 minutes. Cover top and sides with maple icing as follows – add 1/2 teaspoon butter to 2 tablespoons hot milk; add 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar to make smooth paste; add 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring and spread. Sprinkle with nuts while icing is still soft.
