Pecan Brittle Cake

Another week, another classic American recipe and another pie. Pecan Pie – an American staple! This cake takes all the best elements – the caramel and the pecan – and used them in various ways. You’ve got the caramel drizzle and roasted pecans as decoration, the pecan brittle which offers incredible texture against the sponge and a more intense bitterness to offset the sweetness of the buttercream and finally the gooey, nutty and chewy caramel inbetween each layer.

And it got me thinking about some classic American recipes and desserts that I could work into something. And so I introduce to you the Great Bakes of America series.
