Let eggs and butter warm to room temperature. Cream together adding eggs one
at a time, creaming after each. Add brown sugar. Sift together baking powder and
flour. Add flour mixture alternately with milk to sugar mixture.
Bake in a greased
and floured tube pan for approximately 1 1/2 hours.
Frosting: Toast pecans in butter until brown. Put in mixer bowl. Add confectioners'
sugar; mix well. Add milk enough to thin to spreading consistency. Spread on top
of cake. Some should "drip" down sides and center but should not be spread
except on the top.
