    KayKayPuff's Note:

    This is a family favorite around our house. So simple and so yummy. I use the Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe (#6536) from riffraff to frost it with. Yummy!

      I made this in a 10" x 10" cake tin and baked at 150C fan forced oven for 35 minutes - would line base of tin with baking paper in future for though I greased it well it was looking like it was not going to come out of the tin. I didn't frost but decorated with extra whole pecans. The DS took it to his adult recreation music day and they thoroughly enjoyed it with great relish. Thank you DaddysBabyDoll, made for New Kids On The Block.
