Toasted Butter Pecan Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
I love pecan pancakes, and finally decided to try this cake. Cake is my favorite desert. Although it receives wonderful reviews from others, my family did not prefer the flavor of this cake, saying it was "missing something", and a bit bland. The texture of the cake was excellent, the frosting was really good. I found myself wondering how I could flavor the cake batter a little more. We could not taste the vanilla flavor in the batter. Perhaps my family enjoy chocolate so much, that this lighter flavor just didn't work for them. I will not make the cake again.
This is now one of my favorite Cakes & will be my go to one, I made it for our Church Social & it was a huge hit. I did alter the recipe a bit. I used 4 cake pans & cut them into & made a 8 Layer Cake, I roasted 4 cups of Pecans in 4 Tablespoons of Butter, I put 2 cups in the Batter as per directions & 2 cups Mixed in the Icing, I used 2 Packages of Cream Cheese & 2 Sticks Butter, 7 cups of Sifted Confectioners' Sugar, 2. Teaspoons Vanilla Extract, 3 Tablespoons 2% Milk. I had several people ask for the recipe...
Delicious and moist cake with killer frosting!
I have a question, do you sifted the flour before adding additional dry ingredients?
I've made this without the pecans many times. I need to try it this way!
I don't often take the time to write reviews, but this one deserves compliments. It is one of my families favorite desserts and I save it for special occasions, Easter, for instance, because I don't want them to get too used to it...that's how good it is. Really truly delicious, the frosting pairs perfectly with the rich, moist cake. I can't say enough good things about it: Try it, you won't regret it!
This was a delicious cake! It was a nice change from the usual desserts I make when company comes around. This cake feeds many! And, for those of you concerned about the calories, I was too. But, I cut my cake into 20 pieces! That lowered the calorie count down to 471 calories, which is still a lot. This is a sometimes-cake as I like to call it! :) Delicious!
Awesome cake..I exchanged the pecans with Black Waluts..Awesome!!!
Totally awesome cake!!!
I have made this several times. The first time was for a bake sale and it was among the first to go. It is always complimented.
