Judie's "Big" Pound Cake
Posted on CopyKats by: COOKnQT January12,1998
I use my Bunt pan to make this cake but always put it on a cookie sheet because there is usually overflow... The overflow makes these yummy little crunchy "cookies", they are a special treat for the cook.

3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
6 eggs
2 sticks butter (softened)
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tsp. baking powder

Place all ingredients in a LARGE bowl .....
Beat 5 minutes on high speed
Pour batter into large tube or bunt pan (WELL greased) (OR 1/2 sheet pan)

Bake 350 for 45 minutes - 1 hour (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean)

Allow to cool in pan until luke warm. Once removed from the pan, I let it sit on a wire rack and cover the whole thing with a heavy towel, till the next day ... This allows the "crunch" to form. If you flip it onto a plate or serving platter right away, the part that *was* the top (open end of pan) can get soggy.
Dust with powdered sugar

The pan I prefer to use most often (for a Bundt)is an old Nordic Ware 14 cup capacity, very big & VERY heavy. It was my Grandmothers, I don't even think they make it anymore.

It fits perfectly in a 1/2 sheet pan.

As far as the texture ... The best way I can describe it is "velvety" and rich. The top (open end of pan) gets the most delicious crispy little "crunch".

That looks incredibly easy and yummy. What would you use for shortening, since theres already butter in it?

Ours is not to reason why... Ours is to just follow directions and enjoy.

I made a very similar recipe last night, but used an extra stick of butter instead of the shortening. It turned out great. I only used 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 5 eggs -- and I am very happy with how it turned out.
