If you like pecans (or nuts generally), and you want a cake with a flavor that is just a bit outside the ordinary but not TOO out there, this Toasted Butter Pecan Cake is a good choice. Maybe it’s just the Southern in me, or maybe I’m just a sucker for that blend of creamy and nutty flavor, but butter pecan has been one of my favorite ice cream brands for as long as I can remember. Needless to say, I was a little excited to try out this flavor in cake form, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Yes, some may think that frosting is a little on the heavier side, but it goes REALLY well with the cake, especially since the cake itself has a surprisingly light texture. Buttery, creamy, nutty but not overpoweringly so – such great depth of flavor here. I think that this is a great cake for the holidays, though it’s a straightforward enough recipe that you should have no trouble making it for most any occasion.
