Honey Pecan Cake is my to-go cake. This is the cake I usually make when I don’t have much time to prepare a dessert. I like this cake for the wonderful moist cake with a sweet 2 ingredient cream, and I love cakes with nuts; especially pecans! Do you?
The cream for this cake is made of only two ingredients: dulce de leche and butter. A quick mix (and probably a spoonful to taste, too), and you’ve got yourself the easiest cream that you’ve ever made.
Honey Pecan cake is a very simple cake to make, so give it a try. Pecans are very nutritious nuts, since they are filled with protein and potassium.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this cake:
