DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the corn syrup, 1/4 cup butter, brown sugar, and whipping cream in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, just until mixture comes to a simmer (do not boil). Remove from heat; stir in pecans (mixture will be thin). Pour into a heavily buttered Bundt pan. Set aside.
  • Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler; bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook until the chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  • Beat the remainging 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp butter at medium speed of an electric mixer about 2 minutes or until soft and creamy. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar, beating at medium speed for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the reserved melted chocolate, egg yolks, and vanilla, beating well.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix at low speed just until blended after each addition.
  • Beat egg whites in a small bowl at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg white into the batter. Spoon batter over the pecan mixture in the pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Loosen cake from the sides of the pan, using a narrow metal spatula. Immediately invert cake onto a serving plate. Serve warm with whipped cream.
