Ok, I keep forgetting to rate this cake, so I figured it was about time as I have made it numerous times. I pretty much always use dark brown sugar in all my recipes ( I love the taste). I am not a fan of pecans, so I use walnuts. I love to chop up the walnuts and toast them before adding them to a recipe. I also like to add cinnamon to the batter. When I make this cake I sprinkle the sugar on the greased pan and then add some toasted walnuts. I then pour half the batter in the bottom and sprinkle a little more brown sugar, some cinnamon and some of the toasted walnuts. I then pour the remaining batter over the walnut filling. This cake is just AWESOME! Super moist and delicious! Great for dessert or a great breakfast cake. Thanks for the super recipe :)
I have to update - I make this cake all the time, different flavors and different spice. I have made it with german chocolate cake and chocolate chips and I even make it with a strusel layer in the middle. I made it just recently with a yellow cake mix and pumpkin flavored pudding~AWESOME! Try it any which way and you will love it!!!!!!!
I made this cake without the pecans as my family does not like nuts in cakes, cookies, candy, etc.; otherwise, I followed the directions. The cake was moist and delicious. Thanks for sharing this easy brown sugar cake recipe.
Very good! I used butterscotch flavor pudding instead of vanilla and walnuts instead of pecans and maybe 3/4 C oil and 3/4 C brown sugar. It's moist and sweet and crusty and a wonderful caramel brown color. Seems a pretty flexible recipe. Thanks!
I've made this many times now and always get asked for the recipe. And it is so easy to make. I always leave the nuts out though, due to allergies in the family. A real winner! Thanks! ETA---this cake has now become known in my extended family as THE CAKE and if oft requested at family gatherings and birthdays!
This cake is AMAZING! It's moist, perfectly sweet, and beautiful looking. Just wonderful! I didn't add the chopped nuts (I used walnuts) into the cake batter. Instead, I made an easy caramel sauce and poured over the cake, then sprinkled chopped nuts on top. My family loved it! Thank you for the great recipe! Definitely a keeper!
Quick and easy hit! I personally thought it was a bit too sweet but it was inhaled by all the others. Thanks for posting!
Incredible! My family died over it.
Although the guys thought it could use icing - all still agreed it was awesome! Going to try with the Butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla next. Thanks!
What easy, simple, and fantastic cake! I served it at a party alongside homemade peach ice cream and everyone raved about the cake and asked for the recipe. I will definitely be making this cake again. Thanks for a great recipe!
Great recipe. I added 1/4 cup or rum and 2 tbs to the glaze. It was delicious..<br/>Thanks for the recipe...
