How to make it

  • This recipe can be doubled and baked in 2-8 inch pas or 1-9x13-inch pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Butter an 8 or 9-inch round or square baking pan, dust with flour, tapping out the excess, and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar and salt.
  • Add the butter.
  • With a pastry blender, 2 knives or your fingers, work the mixture to form fine crumbs.
  • Remove 1/2 cup of the crumbs; add the pecans and set aside.
  • To the crumbs remaining in the bowl, add the baking powder and baking soda.
  • Beat in the buttermilk, vanilla and egg just until blended.
  • The batter will not be smooth, so be careful not to overbeat.
  • Spread the batter in the pan.
  • Sprinkle evenly with the crumbs that you set aside.
  • Bake until the cake shrinks from the sides of the pan and the crumbs are golden, 40-45 minutes.
  • Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
