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

  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.
