My famous Pecan Pie Pound Cake! Many have asked me to make this for them. So, here is the recipe. The top does taste like pecan pie on top of pound cake!
4 stick butter
4 cups sugar
4 cups flour (cake or all purpose)
8 large eggs
8 oz cream cheese (note amount not given)
vanilla flavoring (note amount not given)
I leave my cream cheese, butter and eggs out to reach room temp. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add eggs one or two at a time, then add flour one cup at a time. Last, add your vanilla flavoring. Grease and flour your tube pan and pour in batter. Sprinkle liberally with pecans and brown sugar on top. Bake on 300 degree for 1 hour and 15 minutes, increase heat to 325 and bake another 30 minutes. You can test for doneness with a wooden skewer. If you insert and cake is not done (still wet), allow to bake a little longer until skewer can be inserted and comes out dry. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before removing from pan. Then, drizzle with a jar of caramel. As always, my recipes are a guide. Be creative...make it your own!
