Ingredients

  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 Cups light brown sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Sir in the chopped pecans. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

Brown Sugar Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Brown Sugar Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
