I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.There’s a time and place for pillowy desserts that are light as air…and this is neither the time nor the place. This butter pecan pound cake is a dense, but delicious loaf that is just as delicious when dipped into your morning coffee as it is when served as dessert. You may have thought you couldn’t muster another bite, but once you lay eyes on this cake, there’s no point resisting; it’s just too good.
3 Cups Cake Flour
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
3 Sticks Butter (Room Temperature)
5 Eggs (Room Temperature)
1 C Whole buttermilk (Room Temperature)
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon pound cake extract
2 Cups Toasted Pecans
2 cups Powdered Sugar
4 oz Butter
4 oz Cream Cheese
4 tsp half and half
Cream butter and sugar together until smooth(about 3-7 minutes)
slowly add eggs 1 at a time
add flour and milk (alternating )
starting with flour and ending with flour
stir in chopped pecans
pour in greased tube pan
Bake 325 Degrees for 1 hour 10 minutes. Check after 45 minutes. Mine was ready at 1 hour .
Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and if the toothpick comes out with batter on it leave your cake in for the complete baking time.
The toothpick must come out clean.
Let cool in pan on wire rack for 20 mins. Then place on cake plate. Make sure to cover so cake won’t dry out. A tight-fit cake pan would be perfect.
