Georgia Cornbread Cake

  • Yield 12 servings

Ground pecans give this snacking cake a lot of texture.


"This recipe has been in my family for many years. The ground pecans give it the texture of cornbread but there isn't any cornmeal in it."


1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pecans, chopped very fine


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease and flour a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  2. Stir together sugar, brown sugar, eggs and oil in a medium bowl until smooth. Stir in flour and vanilla. Add pecans and stir until evenly mixed. Spoon into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
