      What A Waste Of MY Time! Where's the pecans???? This was a total waste of time...and sourdough can really take a lot of time, preparation, and ingredients. The recipe is written poorly, and has obvious ingredients missing. The pan type is incorrect for baking sourdough...atleast give us the correct baking time for the correct pan! ...I feel someone should have made this before submitting the recipe, as it's a real waste and a big dissappointment. There are other sourdough recipes listed here on this website that are great...and this isn't 1 of them! Waited 'til the next day, for a 2nd tasting, and found it just as big a disappointment as original tasting. Sorry...that I wasted my time and ingredients...

      I was disappointed with this coffeecake. I felt the sourdough flavor really overpowered the other flavors. It wasn't near as good as similar coffeecakes that use sour cream or buttermilk in the batter. The recipe itself also needs some tweaking. The title refers to pecans but there aren't any mentioned in the recipe itself. I added 1/3 cup to the topping mixture. Even though I beat it for 3+ minutes it never got "light". The batter was really more like a sticky dough. The instructions mention you can bake it in a 13x9-inch pan or an angel food pan but then only say "bake for 30 minutes". I used an angel food cake pan and I knew there was no way it would be done in 30 minutes & it wasn't. It took 55 minutes. It was edible and very moist, but I doubt I'll ever make it again. Sorry. UPDATE - we felt this tasted better the next day since the sourdough flavor mellowed out. If you are going to prepare this, I recommend you make it a day early and serve it completely cooled.
