This Acorn Pound Cake Recipe uses acorn masa for a delicious dessert to pair with any meal.
Blend together in a bowl:
1/2 cup of cooking oil 1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of acorn masa
In another bowl, sift together:
1 1/4 cups of flour
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon of soda
Stir the second mixture into the first (a small amount at a time) alternately with 1/4 cup of milk. (NOTE: You can substitute one cup of honey for the cup of sugar specified above . . . but, if you do, you should also substitute a quarter cup of dried milk for the quarter cup of milk just listed.) Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of mace and beat well. Pour the batter into an oiled and floured circular pan (8 inch inside diameter) and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about one hour. No need to make frosting . . . this is one cake that's plenty good "as is"!
