Georgia Pecans

Southern Living Pecan Cupcake Recipe

So how do you pronounce pecan, “pea-can” or “pu-cahn”? Either way you say it, you probably are wondering what brings up this question. With November the declared National Georgia Pecan month and an increase in baking during the holidays, I thought Southern Livings’ Pecan Pie Cupcakes would be appropriate this Sunday.


Butter Cake

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose soft-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Paperbaking cups
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Pecan Pie Frosting

  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Let me know how yours turn out and I would love to hear of any good pecan recipe’s out there that my lovelies make!

Thank you for the comment. I can't wait to read it personally and respond!
