Pecan desserts are a Southern tradition. From adding them to layered desserts to making them the stars of the show in cakes and pies, pecans are a classic addition to many different desserts. Over the years, pecans have been put into all kinds of recipes.
Of course, Hummingbird Cake is a classic dessert with pecans in it, as we like to call it “Pink Stuff” here. It’s a kind of pudding and whipped cream. Also, you better believe I’ve made my fair share of pecan pie. There is one pecan dessert that I love to make more than anything else, this delicious pecan cake.
