Recipe by Sassy in da South
A wonderful treat to make from left-over pound cake. I serve the pecan sauce as a dipping sauce with frilly toothpicks in each crouton. I actually think this would be good with ice cream, sprinkled with croutons & topped with the sauce.
- 4 1⁄2 inches sliced butter pound cake, cut in 1/2 inch cubes (frozen or homemade)
- butter-flavored cooking spray
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄4 cups brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup whipping cream
- 1 cup pecans, toasted
