I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.There’s a time and place for pillowy desserts that are light as air…and this is neither the time nor the place. This butter pecan pound cake is a dense, but delicious loaf that is just as delicious when dipped into your morning coffee as it is when served as dessert. You may have thought you couldn’t muster another bite, but once you lay eyes on this cake, there’s no point resisting; it’s just too good.
With five eggs in it and a cup of butter, it’s no wonder this stuff is dense! But just because it’s hefty, doesn’t mean it’s heavy. The butter gives it plenty of flavor – important, considering this is a butter pecan cake, after all – along with brown sugar for a deeper quality and added moisture, so it doesn’t dry out. To that, you’ll add a tablespoon (yes, tablespoon) of vanilla extract. A teaspoon won’t do here, as you want the taste to knock everyone’s socks off and the vanilla pairs beautifully with the butter and pecans. Finally, you’re going to want to use buttermilk here to keep things moist. Buttermilk doesn’t add any flavor, it’s just a nice alternative to yogurt or sour cream and we like the overall texture we get from using it. This recipes has the perfect blend of flavors.
