How to Make Simply Good Cake


  1. Cake: Mix well all wet ingredients, including eggs. I use wooden spoon for mixing.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients together, then stir into wet ingredients, mixing well.
  3. Add chopped pecans last and blend well.
  4. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan and bake at 350* for 35 minutes...depending on oven, may take longer. Cake is done when toothpick stuck in middle comes out clean. Should have nice, slightly brown appearance. Remove from pan to cooling rack after 10-15 min. Poke holes in cake with sharp object(I use bamboo skewer).
  5. ICING: While cake is cooling...make icing as follows: Mix all ingredients, except pecans, with hand mixer until well blended. Spread over cake(while still warm), and top with chopped pecans! Move onto cake server and let cool completely. ENJOY!
