Denise’s Yummy Pecan Cake

Yummy Pecan Cake

Baking is one of my favorite winter activities…and I especially love fast and easy recipes that the kids can help out with.  This recipe is a family favorite that we get constant requests for and the kids really enjoy getting to help chop up the pecans.  The pecan cake is so yummy on its own that you don’t need the powdered sugar icing, but I like to add it sometimes if I’m giving the cake as a gift or making it for a bake sale.

    This sounds delicious. Do you think I could substitute Truvia or Splenda, egg whites, or egg beaters and skim milk in this recipe. I have heart smart Bisquick, and we are trying to eat as healthy as possible and this recipe is killing me, lol.

    thanks for sharing.

    Carolyn – actually that sounds like it would work perfectly! Could you let us know how it comes out if you try it??

    Julie – it is a quart, but it probably would have been easier for me to say 4 cups :) That’s a lot of nuts, but it’s SO worth it!

    I see the use of Bisquick-will this still come out cake like or will it heavy? Sounds good and the pecans are right up this family’s alley

    Hello, what do you think about a homemade Bisquick mix? Has anyone tried this recipe that way and will it work well? Thanks!
