I have some pecans left over from Thanksgiving (pecans last a long time in the fridge or freezer) and I wanted to try out a recipe I saw awhile ago at justapinch. Not only was it simple to throw together, it was delicious! You can cut it up like a bar (it's more dense than bread, not as soupy as bread pudding...clearly, I'm not a professional food critic with that array of vocabulary), but I scooped it out like bread pudding. It would be delicious with ice cream. I prefer it warm, but am not opposed to eating it at room temperature.
This will definitely be making an appearance next Thanksgiving at my table....and probably a few tables between now and then. Here's a keeper...
*You can make your own self rising flour by mixing 1 1/2 c. flour with 1 t. salt, and 3 t baking powder.
1. Mix sugars, eggs, and oil until smooth.
2. Add flour, vanilla, and pecans.
3. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 pan.
5. Scoop out with a spoon, or let it cool and cut it into squares. Serve warm with ice cream.
