Pecan Pie Cake


Who doesn’t love a great Pecan Pie??  It’s such a classic… a sweet, buttery, almost caramely flavored filling filled with rich nutty pecans!

This Pecan Pie cake isn’t a pie, but it has the delicious flavors of one!  Soft buttery layers of cake & pecans with a gooey rich filling that is just incredible.  The whole cake is then frosted in a very lightly sweetened fresh whipped cream for a treat that is completely out of this world!

There are a few steps to putting this together but we love this cake so it’s definitely worth it!  You can make the filling (and even the layers) the day before.  The cake is best if it sits for a few hours once assembled.  Take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving.

My husband loves this cake.  Once sliced, he drizzles the cake with a little bit of cream from the fridge to make it extra special!
