The Stonefire Apartments Blog is featuring a few of our favorite pecan recipes for National Pecan Day on April 14th. Gather some friends together, make a few pecan recipes, and have some fun on National Pecan Day. We hope that you have a wonderful National Pecan Day!
Southern Pecan Pound Cake from The Baking Pan
This southern pecan pound cake is one of our favorite recipes on this list. All you need to make this treat is pecans, flour, baking powder, salt, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Serve it up for your Pecan Day breakfast (or dessert).
Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles from Six Sisters’ Stuff
These chocolate caramel pecan turtles are great for gifting friends on Pecan Day. We know that you’ll really love how caramel, chocolate, and pecans mix in this easy treat. Buy candy boxes from your local craft store and use these chocolate turtles as a party favor or gift sometime this month.
Pecan Day wouldn’t be complete without a delicious slice of pecan pie. A store bought pie shell can make it easier (and quicker) to make this recipe. Make the filling with pecans, eggs, corn syrup, light brown sugar, molasses, butter, salt, and vanilla extract. Serve up a slice of this pie with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This skillet Texas chocolate sheet cake is one of the most delicious desserts we’ve ever tried. We are especially big fans of the frosting. Use butter, cocoa powder, low fat milk, powdered sugar, vanilla, and chopped pecans to make this fudgy, sweet frosting. This Texas sheet cake (made with cinnamon, sugar, and cocoa powder) is tasty, sweet, and delectable.
We think that these caramel pecan sticky buns are the perfect breakfast for Pecan Day. This treat takes awhile to make, but it’s well worth it. You’ll love how the dough, filling, and pecan topping work together to make a delicious and decadent dessert.
