This is definitely one of my favorites and I bake it at least once a month.

- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Beat all ingredients except pecans, in a medium bowl at medium speed for 2 minutes.
- Stir in pecans and spread into greased and floured tube or 9X13-inch pan.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
- If using tube pan: let cool in form for 10 minutes, invert tube pan and let cool on rack completely.

One word, Excellent! I made a Rum Butter and sugar glaze and poured over this cake while it was still hot. I will be making this a couple of times during this Holiday Season.
