Pecan Cream Cake is one of the best kept secrets, it’s a classic!
Delicious? Right? I have to admit so far all of my Decades of Desserts recipes have never failed me. My great great aunt knew what she was doing!
Last week I shared the Pecan Rum Cake and this week it’s all about Pecan Cream Cake.
My husband picked up fresh pecans from a local farm in town so I have been on a pecan kick although, I’m allergic to them so I can’t eat them.
He loves them and basically my entire family does so I try to cook with them when I can.
How to make Pecan Cream Cake
As soon as he walked in from work, I had this Pecan Cream Cake waiting on the stove. My husband took a bite then ask me if it was gluten free.
Typically, if he ask that then I wonder if it taste funny. He then tells me how he can’t believe that was gluten free because it was amazing. Well, it is gluten free!
He took another huge slice then had another one later in the day. I had to remind him that the cake did have a TON of butter in it.
Safe to say…this one is a keeper!
I decided to only ice the middle and top; however, my husband requested the entire cake be iced next time because he loved the icing so much.
I thought it would be a bit too sweet with the entire cake iced but apparently according to my husband the sweeter, the better.
I shared this with my family and they all enjoyed it! It’s now being requested for upcoming parties!
Next week, I’ll be sharing a wrap up of all my Decades of Desserts recipes then we’ll be moving on to even more tasty treats.
