Butter Pecan Pound Cake is a delightful dessert that combines the rich flavors of butter, toasted pecans, and a tender pound cake crumb. Here’s a scrumptious recipe for you to enjoy:


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • Optional: additional chopped pecans for garnish


  1. Prepare the Oven and Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan or tube pan.
  2. Toast Pecans:
    • Spread the chopped pecans on a baking sheet and toast in the preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes until fragrant. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning. Once toasted, remove and let them cool.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugars:
    • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer or stand mixer.
  4. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
    • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until incorporated.
  5. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Alternate Mixing:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the flour mixture, mixing until just combined after each addition. Do not overmix.
  7. Fold in Pecans:
    • Gently fold in the toasted chopped pecans into the batter until evenly distributed.
  8. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan or tube pan, spreading it evenly.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for about 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  10. Cool and Garnish:
    • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes, then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Once cooled, you can garnish the cake with additional chopped pecans if desired.
  11. Slice and Serve:
    • Slice the Butter Pecan Pound Cake and serve it on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.

Enjoy the buttery richness and nutty goodness of this delectable Butter Pecan Pound Cake with family and friends! It’s perfect for gatherings, holidays, or any time you crave a delicious homemade dessert.
