Every once in a while, I make something that really hits the spot. This Pecan Cinnamon Sour Cream Pound Cake was one of those times. I layered this into a Bundt pan and topped it with a sugar glaze to make the perfect slice of cake to accompany a great cup of my favorite Coffee over Cardio brand of coffee (messy bun).
Since I started this blog, my husband has said that he is having a hard time watching his weight. It has actually become quite the joke in the house that all he has to do is mention watching his carbs, and within the next hour, I have a cake, muffins, or cookies on the kitchen counter just tempting him. So, we decided that when I make something sweet, we will have one serving and then pass the rest on to co-workers, other family members, etc. Well, guess what? Once he had a slice of this Pecan Cinnamon Pound Cake, he was like…. no, let’s leave this one here!
So, while our waistline may be getting a little bigger, it is worth it to be able to create and share all of my favorite recipes with you. Sorry, but every time Jim complains about the amount of cooking I do, I blame y’all :).
