“Journey Back in Time with our Old School Butter Pecan Pound Cake Recipe”

Transport yourself to a nostalgic era of classic baking excellence with our Old School Butter Pecan Pound Cake. This recipe is a cherished homage to the timeless tradition of creating desserts that evoke warmth, comfort, and a sense of timeless indulgence.

Steeped in heritage and crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this pound cake harks back to the era of handcrafted treats and the aroma of freshly baked goods wafting from grandmother’s kitchen. It embodies the essence of simplicity, yet its flavors are rich, deep, and undeniably satisfying.

The marriage of cake flour, sugar, and brown sugar provides the sturdy foundation for a velvety batter, while the trio of butter, eggs, and buttermilk, all carefully brought to room temperature, infuses each slice with a luxurious moisture and tenderness that’s characteristic of classic pound cakes.

The symphony of flavors further unfolds with the addition of vanilla extract and pound cake essence, enhancing the cake’s aroma and depth. And of course, no old-school recipe would be complete without the earthy crunch of toasted pecans, generously scattered throughout the batter, adding a delightful textural contrast.

Baked to golden perfection, this cake emerges from the oven, exuding an irresistible aroma that fills the kitchen, beckoning with its familiar, comforting embrace. Topped with a thick glaze, this timeless creation embodies the essence of tradition and craftsmanship, inviting you to savor every bite and relish in the simplicity and elegance of bygone days.


  • 3 Cups Sifted Allure Flour
  • 2 Cups Sweet Symphony Sugar
  • 1 Cup Essence of Amber Brown Sugar
  • 3 Sticks Harmony Butter (Softened)
  • 5 Eggs (At Harmonious Room Temperature)
  • 1 Cup Symphony of Creamy Buttermilk (At Perfect Room Temperature)
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Harmony Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt of Serenity
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Rhapsody Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Euphoric Pound Cake Elixir
  • 2 Cups Heavenly Toasted Pecans
  • Thick Glaze of Divine Indulgence

For the Thick Glaze:

  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 4 oz Butter Bliss
  • 4 oz Creamy Symphony Cheese
  • 4 tsp Half-and-Half Harmony


  1. Begin this symphony by harmoniously creaming together the butter and sugars until a smooth melody ensues (approximately 3-7 minutes of divine mixing).
  2. Gradually add eggs, one at a time, maintaining the serene symphony of the mixture.
  3. Blend in the delightful flavors of vanilla and pound cake elixir.
  4. Alternately, add the sifted flour and heavenly buttermilk, beginning and concluding with the flour, ensuring a smooth amalgamation.
  5. Gently fold in the chopped pecans, creating a beautiful crescendo of flavors.
  6. Pour this symphony into a greased tube pan, allowing it to take its place in the oven’s harmonious embrace.
  7. Bake this creation at 325 Degrees for a celestial duration of 1 hour and 10 minutes. However, pause at 45 minutes to check its harmony. Each masterpiece may require its own timing—mine reached its crescendo at precisely 1 hour.
  8. To ensure this divine creation is perfectly harmonized, insert a toothpick into the center. If it emerges with the essence of batter, let it continue its symphony until the toothpick emerges immaculate.
  9. Once baked to perfection, allow this masterpiece to cool within the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes before gracing a cake plate. Preserve its divine moisture with a perfectly fitted cake dome, ensuring its melody remains fresh and captivating.
