Garnish the cake with crushed pecans for a picture perfect presentation. Guests at your Christmas party will be utterly impressed by your baking skills when they eat a piece of this holiday dessert.

Thank you so much for this free Butter Pecan Cake recipe. It is possibly the yummiest thing I have eaten in months! The pecan and buttermilk flavors are so heavenly against the sweet and quite rich cream cheese frosting. I am so going to make this for my next book club meeting. Those ladies are going to absolutely LOVE this!

My husband loves butter pecan cake and I have not had a lot of luck finding a good recipe to make one. As a result, I always end up using the box mix. I really prefer making our food from scratch, so I am thrilled to find this recipe. I will have to make this for his birthday.

I love this Butter Pecan Cake recipe! It came out so good and was the best butter pecan cake I have ever made or had. The recipe is spot on and comes out every time. I have a love for chocolate and I drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the cake after the cream cheese frosting and pecans on top. It adds just the right amount of chocolate for that extra punch of flavor to this already delicious cake. Thank you so much for sharing this free cake recipe.
