This is a great cake which can be made and served any time. If you like, substitute walnuts for the pecans.
Wonderful cake! I didn't have 3 layer cake pans, so I baked it in a 13x9 pan for 45 minutes. It turned out great. You may be tempted to skip the pecan toasting process, but don't! Toasting the pecans in butter is what gives this cake its unique, irresistible flavor. The cake received rave reviews from my family and my co-workers. I will definitely keep this cake on my "favorites" list! - 25 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a very good cake. Do not overbake or I think it would be dry. The icing tastes like butter pecan ice cream, the heavy cream gives it that flavor. - 28 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Flavor was good. Cake was very very dry. Neither my family nor I like dry cake. I had to throw out more than 1/2 of it because no one wanted to eat it. I am not a novice cook either. Will not make this again. - 19 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
