Holiday Pecan Cake

Another simple Mennonite / Amish cake.
Most of us have these ingredients in our pantry so it can be a last minute dessert at short notice.

Pecan Cake:

1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter, room temperature
3 eggs, separated
2 1/2 C flour
1 C chopped pecans
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 C whole milk
a pinch of salt

Cream sugar and butter with a hand mixer until light and creamy
Beat in egg yolks until smooth.

Sift together:
baking powder
Add to butter/sugar mixture gradually beating, alternating with milk.

Fold in pecans by hand

In a separate bowl:
beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the cake mixture by hand.

Pour the batter into a loaf pan greased with my Pan Release Mixture, found on the blog under, Tips, Hints and More. ( for a perfectly released cake)

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Serve sliced topped with powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Peace in the Kitchen!
