Pecan Cake

Pecan sweet bread with honey
I actually wanted pecan pie. Somehow mine didn't turn out quite like pie. But I've made this a few times now, and I've begun to imagine it more like a cake. Drizzle it with a little honey and this dish will be gone in no time.


2 cups pecan halves
4 Tbs. butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
3 eggs
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Mix all the ingredients into a high power blender, and blend until the batter is of an even consistency. Pour batter into a nonstick 9" pie tin. Bake for 35-40 min.


*The reason you use a high power blender is so that it chops the pecans into more of a flour consistency. I've found that they chop better with the liquid ingredients included. You can also use almond flour if you want an almond cake. Use just a little less than 2 cups (about 1 2/3 cups).
*You can also use an 8"x8" tin. Make sure it's nonstick (at least butter it if it's nonstick).
