My state is known for the delicious pecans it produces, so this recipe definitely represents Georgia. The pecan flavor comes through nicely in this cake.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2011

"It was good. I did change it and add 2 cups pecans. I will make it again but it just didn't have that "WOW" that I look for in recipes. It's alot like the Rum Cake recipe I got from a Taste of Home mag."
