How to Make Butter Pecan Cake


  • 1In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • 2Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in vanilla and 1 cup toasted pecans.(The remainder of the pecans will be used for the frosting).
  • 3Pour batter into two greased and floured 8"round baking pans or in my case, I used 1 8x8 square baking pan(pyrex). Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 4Once finished let it cool down for about 10 mins. Once cooled remove from pan(s)onto wire rack or heat proof plate to cool completely then frost.
  • 5For Frosting:
    Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add milk and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Add additional milk if needed. Stir in 1 cup of the ready toasted pecans(I usually like to crush them 1st). Spread between the layers and over the top and sides of the cake.
