6 Flavor Pecan Nut Glazed Pound Cake

Rose Mary Mogan


This is one of the dessert additions I made for our 2013 Family Reunion in North Carolina this year to share with the family.

I have made this cake before but never with nuts in the glaze to give the cake a crunchy & nutty texture.

The combination of the 6 flavorings added to both the cake & the frosting really does add a lot of depth in flavor to the cake.

I am sure my family will love the flavors of this cake, as I am sharing the recipe & picture of the cake before I leave.

It is great weather you add the nuts in the cake batter, in the bottom of the cake pan, or in the glaze.
