Heat oven to 350 F. Using 1 T. solid shortening, generously grease and

all cake ingredients except nuts; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in
nuts. Pour into prepared pan.

comes out clean. Cool upright in pan 15 minutes; invert onto serving plate,
cool completely.

In small saucepan, heat 2 T. brown sugar, milk and butter just until
melted. Remove from heat; add powdered sugar and blend until smooth.
Drizzle over cake; sprinkle with nuts. 12 to 16 servings.
