Life needs more cake, right? Cake is one of the ultimate comfort foods and it’s also one of the ultimate celebration foods, so of course you’ll probably be seeing a few more cakes on here during the holidays. It’s the time of year where many of us are baking and also where we are allowing a few more splurges in our lives – and this cake should definitely be one of them! It’s brimming with buttery pecan flavor, it has a perfectly soft and tender crumb and of course it’s a moist cake – I hate dry cakes. You will want to savor each and every bite of this cake! Not only is the cake itself perfectly delicious but it’s coated with a luscious cream cheese frosting, because cream cheese frosting is simply the best. I love how the cream cheese balances out the sweetness of the cake as well as the buttermilk that’s blended into the batter. They also just add more depth of flavor so you’re cake will be anything but boring.
This cake has a whopping 2 cups pecans swirled into the batter and 1/2 cup pecans garnishing the top. And I didn’t just use any nuts, I used Fisher Nuts because they are my nuts brand of choice. I chose to create this cake with Fisher Nuts because it is one of the only brands of recipe nuts entirely without preservatives, I also love that I can purchase them in larger bags so I get more for my money. Pecans are the highlight of this cake so you’ll want to make sure you are using the best quality and Fisher is a brand you can always count on!
I have the feeling this is a cake you’ll want to make for special occasions again and again! It’s so good it will likely remind you of something your Grandma may have made and something she’d absolutely love to eat! If you love the butter pecan flavor you’ve got to try this cake and what better time than during the holidays? It’s a cake destined to impress! Read more »
