Comment on this recipe

This is a fourth generation recipe that was made often, especially around the holidays, when we were kids. It is a firm loaf, when sliced thin and buttered is delicious!

4 cups all-purpose flower
8 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup chopped black walnuts
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

Combine all ingredients together - it will be a stiff batter. Grease or spray one large or two small loaf pan(s) and spread mixture in them. Let stand 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Turn out immediately and wrap in wax paper. Let cool.
