This is a delicious rich and moist cake! When I made it, the recipe did not have any sugar in the batter -- so I guessed at one cup. It turned out great, and really has a nice flavor and is a snap to make. Thanks, Tracy for sharing the recipe.
the smell that this cake makes when cooking is unbelievable, it even got the kids out of their rooms to investigate and like tracy says, it is rich. i used walnuts instead of pecans and they were quite good
