This is a very rich and highly indulgent 3-layer cake. Chopped pecans are folded into the sponge cake batter before being baked. The cake is then assembled with a sweet and creamy filling.
Fabulous cake! Looks really impressive and tastes as good as it looks! I serve with Butter pecan ice cream and I never have any left when we have people to dinner! Excellent and not terribly hard to do! - 22 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was really excited about making this cake. What a disappointment! A lot of work for just a mediocre cake. It didn't taste like a pecan pie to me and it wasn't as moist as it needed to be. The best thing about it was the frosting. I hate to give bad reviews, but will not make this cake again! - 21 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
it was ok didn't taste like pecan pie. the filling was the best and taste more like pecan pie. need to correct recipe need to know if 1tsp or 1tbsp vanilla, and do u add 3/4 cup caro to cake batter or just brush cake with caro after baking. - 26 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
