I do love me some pecans! From Cooking Club of America.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Heat oven to 350°F Grease and lightly flour 2 (9x5x3-inch) loaf pans.
- In large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beating at low speed, add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
- In another large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. At low speed, alternately beat flour mixture and milk into sugar mixture, beating just until blended. Fold in pecans. Spread in pans.
- Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.
Well, I do LOVE me some pecans too ~ and this pound cake is full of them. Loved the cinnamony flavor ~ and I admit I used 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans. Very nice texture and so delicious right out of the pan before cooling :) Thanks SweetJezebel ~ made for PAC FALL 2009!
