The garnish on the cake are sugared pecans. YUM! I have a recipe for these but in my attempt to follow the recipe exactly I made the ones in the recipe. They got a little burned. That's what I get for following directions!
Then I mixed up and baked the cake:
|I was encouraged by the results! It wasn't burned.|
Usually I burn anything in a bundt pan.
|Nothing like some morning motivation to make some icing!|
|Making the glaze...YUM!|
Which was evidently tasty:
Even I ate it...and I plan to eat more tomorrow. Most people who know me know that when I bake I usually don't want to eat it afterward. There was only one thing I baked that I really enjoyed eating...but there is another one the list! And there isn't even chocolate in this!
In case you didn't notice, I put the link to the recipe above which I will try to do any time I put up a post about a recipe attempt.
- The pecans burned even though I followed the recipe. In the future, I will try to cook them at a lower temp (perhaps 325 instead of 350?) and probably stir them sooner than the recipe called for.
- The recipe said to bake the cake for 1 hour and 15 minutes but it only took an hour in my oven.
- With most cake recipes I have to double the icing/frosting/glaze. Not this one! There was plenty of icing with just one batch (and I even had to throw out a little bit).
