This is delicious! Light and yet moist. I subbed walnuts for the pecans but otherwise used ingredients exactly as written. I baked mine in a bundt pan and after it was cool, I dusted it with powdered sugar. I served it as a birthday cake last night for my husband's birthday and everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks!
