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!

This is an incredible cake. I made it without the nuts. I covered it with a brown sugar glaze and crushed the walnuts and poured them over the cake. It was the tastiest cake I have made in a long while and my family devoured it.

This is a very flavorful cake and was enjoyed but the ladies in the Attitude Adjustment coffee group yesterday afternoon. I did find that mine was a little dry, but I will attribute that to the new oven that I've only baked in once. I did use pecans instead of walnuts as they are my personal preference. The cake had a nice crunchy top and made a beautiful presentation.
