Pecan Pie Loaf Cake

Pecan pie cake

Moist, tender, sweet, and scrumptious pecan pie in a cake! Serve with coffee in the morning, or topped with vanilla ice cream after supper. Any way you do it, it’s delicious! I use a 7 x 4 x 4 loaf pan. If you use something different, your mileage may vary on the bake time.
