I made this for PAC Spring '09. I didn't use the 1 cup pecans because my husband doesn't like them. This is very good similar in taste tp pineapple upside down cake but easier to make.
Very moist, delicious sheet cake. Since it is baked on a jelly roll pan (mine is 15" x 10"), servings are thin which helps to lessen the guilt! Will definitely bake again. Thanks!
Ok, we tasted it warm and it is fabulous! My husband loved it! Would be great for parties with all that it could serve. Awesome...thx!!!
