Pecan pie is my favourite dessert, I think its completely underrated and so its not often that I see it on a restaurant menu or in a cafe. When I saw the pecan pie cake by Liv for Cake I was so excited to give it a try myself. The result was everything I could dream of… cake AND the gorgeous taste of pecan pie in one!
The brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream is so delicious and silky and balances perfectly with the crunch of the pecan pie filling… yum!
I’ve decided the next time I bake this cake i’ll tweak a couple of things in the recipe to make the pecan pie filling a little richer with half of the light brown sugar replaced with dark brown sugar, as well as doubling the amount of pecan pie filling to leave a nice thick layer in between the sponges.
This pecan pie cake will be appearing at my market stall at Real Food Ilkley this Sunday, so make sure to come down if you’re intrigued! There will also be Baileys and cappuccino bundt cakes , pumpkin, maple and cinnamon bundt cakes and pear and cardamom bundt cakes. I have two more layer cake flavours to announce so keep your eyes peeled!
