Pecan Cake

Pecans are some of my favorite nuts. They’re so earthy and good. I also love how soft they are unlike how almonds can sometimes feel like you’re about to break your teeth! Pecan desserts are especially lovely. I think it’s because the sweetness of the cake or pie combines with that earthy, nutty pecan flavor to create something magical!

This pecan cake looks delicious, and it doesn’t look too difficult to make! 

Do you have a sweet tooth? Yeah, I do too! I’m always drooling over desserts, and then sometimes giving in to the temptation and shoving that sweet goodness into my mouth. Mmmm! This pecan pie looks perfect for any occasion that calls for a cake… That includes that Thursday evening you want a cake!
