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.

"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."
