This cake, Big Daddy’s Cake, from Maida Heatter’s Cakes, is soooooo good.  How good is it you ask?  Well, I’ll tell you.  It is so good, it’s worth aging another year for!

This wonderful cake, which is becoming a birthday tradition for me, has three cubes of butter, two cups of toasted pecans, 6 eggs, 2 1/2 cups of sugar and 12 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate.  Really, what more could a girl ask for?

Before the final chocolate drizzle.

The only change I made to the recipe was using 4 cups of Sans Gluten, SVP flour rather than wheat flour, and I added Xanthan Gum.  This is really a stunning cake.  It makes a chocolate and pecan tube in the middle.

Just because they're so pretty!

Happy Birthday Me!
