The Cake Slice Bakers Presents...Cinnamon-Pecan Coffee Cake

Yeah!!! My first posting for the Cake Slice Bakers......soooooo excited to be a part of the group. We are baking from Nancie McDermott's "Southern Cakes", and for our first project we chose this coffee cake....which is incredible on days 1, 2 and 3.....so light and fluffy and cinnamonny (is that a word?).

The batter is super thick and hard to spread in a pan, so I ended up 1 1/2 x the cake recipe just to have more to spread.....so lot's of cake....and omitted raisons (cuz they're just humilated grapes after all...).

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post the recipe, so I won't....if you're interested check out the cookbook, check some of the other cake slice bakers blogs here or comment me....


  1. Welcome to CS and you did an amazing job with your 1st challenge. Looks delicious.

  2. Welcome to the group! Your first one looks great!

  3. welcome to the group-- glad to have you baking with us.

    the raisin comment made me laugh :-)

  4. Welcome to the group! Your cake looks fab and very moist and tender.

  5. I omitted raisins too :) A very moist cake...

  6. Hi Sandi!

    I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself- My name is Joy and I’m another one of the newbie Cake Slice bakers. I’m really looking forward to meeting other members, and I hope to have the chance to get to know you better as we bake our way through Southern Cakes :)

    Fantastic job on your coffee cake- it looks super yummy! And I have to thank you for putting a big smile on my face- I thought it was too funny how you called raisins "humiliated grapes." I just had to laugh! I'm sure your cake still tasted delicious without them.

    If you have a chance, I’d love for you to stop by my blog, “Hot Oven, Warm Heart,” and say hello- it’d be wonderful to hear from you!

    Hope you have a great rest of your week and a relaxing weekend!
