Notes from the Test Kitchen:
My whole family loved this cake! A scoop of ice cream and a glass of milk would be perfect with this moist cake.

I used a 6oz bag of pecan pieces, because I couldn't find a can of pecans. This had a wonderful taste of vanilla and pecans. I bet a caramel glaze would be lovely too!
