I have made this recipe for years. It never had pecans in it or a glaze until I just recently decided it would be awesome to add the pecans and finish it off with this glaze concoction I made. It is especially delicious with a cup of coffee and a great holiday cake recipe. Please enjoy :)

This cake is a cinnamon and pecan lover's dream - it's bursting with cinnamon flavor and full of pecans inside and out. The cake is tender and moist inside with a slight crust on the outside. The browned butter glaze is almost like a cinnamon-flavored praline glaze. Guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser!
