Butter Pecan Pound Cake Recipe
This recipe helped me bring the best of two worlds together, fresh pecans and my love for pound cake. Every fall we have hoards of pecans fall from our very large, very old pecan trees. I am not complaining, mind you, but I do have to come up with great recipes to use these pecans in. Making a pound cake always seems to be the best dessert. It is a larger cake that feeds a lot of people. Also, makes a great dessert or a sweet treat with your coffee at breakfast time. So now lets put them together.
My butter pecan pound cake is made with a perfect base pound cake recipe with the added chopped pecans and then turned into a poke cake. Poking holes into the hot cake and filling it with a sweet butter sugar glaze turns this pound cake into something special.
Now, be sure to not take the cake out of the pan when it has finished baking. The cake needs to cool with the butter glaze soaking into it just like the traditional poke cakes.
