The flavors are of course made up of pecan nuts and maple syrup. The cake itself is soft, fluffy, moist and sweet. Add the frosting and you've got a lovely cake for a celebration!

Here, our friend Carina shares her pecan maple cake recipe and she recently made this for her hubby's birthday. It went down a treat and of course, since it was so popular at the party, it's a recipe worth sharing.

The cake is very sweet, so if you prefer a slightly less sweet cake, feel free to reduce the thickness of frosting you use on the cake, or perhaps reduce the sugar quantity in the cake itself by around 25 %. The cake will still taste absolutely wonderful so adapt to your own taste.

Recipe By: Carina Duclos

Prep Time

15 Minutes

Cook Time

25 Minutes

Serves

10 - 12 slices

Ingredients

The Cake

2/3 cup or 170 g of soft butter
1 1/3 cups or 265 g white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp maple extract
2 cups or 250 g flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup or 235 ml milk
1 1/2 cups or 215 g pecans

The Frosting

3/4 cup or 170 g cream cheese
4 tbsp butter, room temperature.
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups or 420 g confectioners sugar

The Assembly

4 Tablespoons Maple syrup, divided

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 C.

2. Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at the time and mix between additions. Add vanilla and maple extracts.

3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Add half of the flour to the egg mix, then half of the milk, then half of flour and half of milk.

4. Separate the cake batter in to two greased baking pans. I used two squares 9 x 9 inches.

5. Place in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Check it may take a little longer or less depending on your oven.

6. Allow the cakes to cool for 5 minutes then remove from pans and turn on to cooling racks. Completely cool before assembly and frosting.

7. Assemble the cake: Place one cake on your serving dish. Using HALF of the maple syrup, sprinkle it over the top of the cake. Meanwhile, make the frosting.

8. Prepare the frosting by beating together cream cheese, butter and vanilla, then add the sugar. Beat until smooth and creamy.

9. Spread a layer of frosting over the top of the first cake then sprinkle half of the pecans on top.

10. Add the second cake on top of the pecans. Use the remaining maple syrup and sprinkle over the top of the second layer of cake, wait a few minutes for the syrup to absorb in to the cake, then apply the frosting to the top and around the sides of the cake. Sprinkle the remaining pecans over the cake as you wish.

Notes: The frosting amount is to make thick layers so if you don't want so much, simply reduce the quantity or use any extra frosting for another creation! It will keep in the fridge nicely for a few days.
