Love pecan pie? Us, too. This recipe is the best of both worlds — mama’s old fashioned pound cake with a pecan pie flair. You can’t go wrong serving this pecan pie pound cake to your Texas guests; after all, pecans are the state nut. Check out San Saba for some of the best pecans around. This cake is rich and indulgent, so a small slice is plenty! (With a dip of Blue Bell, of course.)
Delicious! Kick your usual pound cake up a notch with pecans and brown sugar baked in and topped with caramel ice cream topping. Texas Pecan Pie Pound Cake combines the rich flavors of caramelly goodness with crunchy pecans, thus combining two of the best desserts in the world together into one mega delicious dessert!
I am totally in my element here. I am like a fish IN the water, swimming around happily, nibbling at this and that and enjoying my very existence. Because the holidays are fast approaching and I have the oven going almost every day, baking up something delicious. The calendar turned to November and I was on it faster than you say Jack Robinson, faster than greased lightening, faster than a speeding bullet. Think of all the idioms that mean as fast as fast can be, and that’s how fast I got into the holiday baking. Maybe even faster. Because there is nothing more joyous than baking my way through November and December. I live for this stuff!
4 stick butter
4 cups sugar
4 cups flour (cake or all purpose)
8 large eggs, 8 oz cream cheese
2 to 3 tsp of vanilla flavoring
I leave my cream cheese, butter and eggs out to reach room temp. In Mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add eggs one or two at a time, then add flour one cup at a time. Last, add 2 to 3 tsp of vanilla flavoring. Grease and flour your tube pan and pour in batter. You will put batter in first, then sprinkle pecans and brown sugar on top (a cup or little more of each), lightly press into the batter. Bake on 300 degree for 1 hour and 15 minutes, (you may want to tent the top with foil if it is browning to fast or nuts are scorching) then increase heat to 325 and bake another 30 minutes. You can test for doneness with a wooden skewer. If you insert and cake is not done (still wet), allow to bake a little longer until skewer can be inserted and comes out dry. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before removing from pan. When you invert onto a plate, you may lose a few nuts, but as you can see from my picture, they kind of bake into the top crust, then turn onto another plate so pecans are on top! Then, drizzle with a jar of caramel that you would use on ice cream. I like Hershey’s, but have used several and whatever is on sale! LOU As always, my recipes are a guide. Be creative…make it your own! Additional note: I am getting questions from several people about things not listed such as milk, baking powder, baking soda, salt etc… Feel free to tweak your cake and add what you like, but what is written is what I did.
