Yummy. I've been looking for a new cake to make and this recipe sounds delish! This is a healthier cake and would be vegan, but there is honey added. From "The Best of Silver Hills Delicious Vegetarian Cuisine" cookbook.

This is so yummy!!! I was very lucky to find this, as Engrossed is right this would be quite expensive to make but I am moving house right now and had pecans and maple syrup I needed to use up. I made this as we are spending our last night in this house and moving tomorrow and I wanted something to keep for a snack tomorrow so we did not have to use oven or stove or microwave again after cleaning. We tried some tonight after hours of packing and cleaning and boy did it go down well.Very tasty, delicious and satisfying. I am very glad we have this for tomorrow be it for breakfast or a mid morning snack. It will be sure to keep us going
until we get to our temporary accommodation tomorrow. I will look forward to making this again for my family in Europe when we get there as I know they will love it. A really yummy cake recipe Enjolinfam and I will definitely be enjoying this again in the future.

WONDERFUL! This recipe is interesting, different and yummy! It also is a bit expensive but worth it. The cake part has a nice light lemon flavor and the topping turns out like caramel with pecans in it. I did use only 2 tbsp of Splenda brown sugar blend and part acacia honey, part buckwheat honey and some agave nectar. Freddy Cat says thanks for the sweets! Made for the Zaar recipe tag game.
