I don't normally buy pecans as they are fairly expensive locally. Coincidentally, my mum brought me a whole bag of pecans from the USA, just in time for me to bake this cake. The taste which pecans adds to this cake is really unique, a special taste which other nuts doesn't have. It goes so well with the chocolate chips and the cinnamon to create a lovely top crust for the cake.
The inside of this soft and moist buttery cake is also studded with the chocolate-pecan-cinnamon mixture. This cake is so addictive and it is certainly one of my favourites cakes from this book.
Eileen of Hundred and Eighty Degrees is the host of this bake. Please see this page for the full recipe.
