Buttermilk Pecan Sticky Bun Coffee cake.

This cake was good to my standards but then again I love caramel sooo that has a very significant part of decision. My parents on the other hand only thought this cake was ok but I must admit it is a cake that must be eaten right away. If you let it sit for too long it starts to get a little hard. Other than that I found this cake to be quite satisfying!

So, if you like caramel you must go and try this cake!

The recipe is from a very cute little website with great photographs! The blog is called Savour Fare and I would defiantly go and check it out!


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbs molasses
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

For Frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 buttermilk
  • Pecan halves to dust on top!

Preheat oven to 350 and spray cooking spray or other grease in a 10 by 13 baking dish

Mix the butter, sugar, and molasses in a bowl and beat until nice and fluffy.

Add the eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk. Mix until combined. Add the flours, baking soda, and salt next, also mixing until combined.

Pour into pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

For the frosting heat the butter until it becomes a deep nutty brown color. Be careful so it doesn't burn. Add the sugar, cornstarch, and buttermilk, and cook on high heat for about two to three minutes. Take off burner and let cool for just a little bit. Then poor all over the cake! Garnish with the nuts but be careful after they dry of moving them because they will take the cake with them too!
