Wonderfully different pound cake! The addition of brown sugar makes for a nice change of flavor as well as color to the traditional pound cake. I did not add the walnuts to the batter because 1/2 of my family doesn't care for nuts but I imagine they would be a flavorful addition. I had to bake my cake an additional 10 minutes so I'd recommend checking your cake at the 1 hour mark first. Followed you advice, and topped off my pound cake with a simple brown sugar glaze which was a nice addition. I'm adding this recipe to my favorite pound cake recipe collection - thanks for the recipe!
