Lucille's notes for this recipe:
Obviously this was my mom's recipe and I am so happy that I was able to get this recipe before she passed away. It reminds me so much of her when I make it.

It is not very rich and has a delicate taste but a hardy crumb. I love this pound cake especially being able to post it on National Pound Cake Day in her memory.

This sounds so good, I'm glad you did get this. I kick myself for not getting my Grandmothers recipe for a cake.
How much sugar and how much cinnamon?
user Lucille Hoerle hoerlel - Mar 4, 2012
I'm sorry, Roxanne, but I am not sure where the cinnamon sugar mixture came from. I may have hit the suggestion box below sugar. I did edit the recipe and it is only 1 3/4 cups of sugar.

Maybe I am missing something but I don't see where it says how much buttermilk to add. It sounds like a good recipe. I can't wait to try it.

Oh, I'm sorry! I did forget the most important part of the recipe. I did edit it. Thank you for noticing the omission.

What kind of walnuts? Black walnuts or English walnuts?
