Butter-Pecan Cake
This cake gets its great pecan flavor from pecans browned in butter.
•1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
•1 cup butter
•2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
•3/4 cup granulated sugar
•1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
•1 tablespoon baking powder
•1 teaspoon salt
•1 cup milk
•1 teaspoon vanilla
•2 eggs
•Butter Pecan Frosting
•4 cups confectioners' sugar
•reserved browned butter
•1/8 teaspoon salt
•1 teaspoon vanilla
•about 1/3 cup milk
•remaining chopped pecans
In 2-quart saucepan over medium low heat, brown pecans in butter until butter is lightly browned; stir constantly. Drain browned butter into a measuring cup; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, and baking powder, salt, milk, vanilla, eggs, and 1/2 cup of the browned butter. Beat for about 2 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup of the chopped pecans. Pour batter into two greased and floured 8- or 9-inch round layer cake pans. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from pans and cool thoroughly before frosting.
Blend confectioners' sugar with remaining browned butter, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 cup milk. Add more milk if necessary, a teaspoon at a time. Stir in remaining chopped pecans. Spread top of one layer with about 1/2 cup frosting; top with second layer. Spread remaining frosting over the top and sides of the cake.
