    Nancy Jill Thames

    List of Ingredients

    6 tablespoon butter (no substitutions)
    1 cup pecans
    1 and 1/2 cup self-rising flour
    1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Adjust to 1 1/2 cups
    1 and 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2/3 cup milk (more if needed)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 and 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 and 1/2 cup hot water


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Add butter to a 9x13 inch cake pan or casserole dish and melt in the oven.
    3. Once butter is melted, sprinkle the pecans over butter.
    4. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir to combine, but don't over-mix.
    5. Pour batter over butter and pecans, do not mix.
    6. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over batter, do not stir.
    7. Carefully pour the hot water over the mixture; do not stir.
    8. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.

    1. I recommend using real butter only
    2. I do not recommend reducing either the brown sugar or the hot water
    3. I do not recommend reducing the amount of butter
    4. I used whole milk.
