    This was excellent! Made an adjustment to the pecans because i love pecans. Roasted the pecans first, and increased to 1 cup in the cake.
    The frosting was awesome, but made slight adjustments based on personal taste. My family loved it!! Increased the pecans in the frosting to 1-1/2 cups, and added 1 tsp vanilla. Decreased powdered sugar to 2 cups sifted and felt that was just perfect.

    This looks yummy, wish I could have made this for my upcoming holiday but my kids want brownies (again). I will try this for my dad's birthday if I can get all the ingredients by this weekend. Thank you!
