This is the first time I've ever used pecans (we can't get them here). Conclusion? They taste exactly like walnuts! Anyway, that withstanding, this tasted really good. I just made some slight changes though as I halved the amount of sugar in the cake.
This is so very good! Decadent. We especially loved the cake - good enough that it doesn't really need the caramel topping. It is very sweet, so a little goes a long way. I doubled the pecans in both the filling and topping.
This coffee cake is wonderful! When a close family friend stopped by, I quickly made this to go with our coffee. It was a success! I was unable to make the caramel topping due to time restraints, so I quickly drizzled some powdered sugar icing on top of the warm cake. It was good, but I'm anxious to try the caramel topping next time. Thanks, Hazeleyes
