I haven't made this cake myself yet; but this is the recipe my mom had for pecan cake. I just found it tucked into one of her cookbooks. It's a really good cake; and this recipe appears to be the only one here that includes the glaze, which is one of the best parts of the cake. I will definitely be making this sometime, perhaps for my own birthday in November since she's not here to make it for me any more. Thank you!
