Thanksgiving Dessert Recipe

Some families stay true to tradition and make the same recipes year after year for the holidays.

Mine isn’t much different. We serve turkey, sweet potato casserole, hashbrowns, etc. We even include pumpkin pie for dessert.

However, I try to add a second dessert to the mix. Something delicious and different that I hope everyone will love!

What goes better on Thanksgiving than a pecan pie dessert? 

In the past, I made Pecan Pie Truffles and Pecan Pecan Pie Blondies. Both were delicious hits for the holidays!

Today’s bundt cake recipe ranks in my top favorite holiday desserts. Pecans (and even walnuts) are the perfect addition to any holiday treat. They bring flavor and texture to all your holiday recipes!

Don’t forget to serve up this Pecan Pie Bundt Cake with some homemade whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce!

Step by Step Instructions

Step by step photos showing how to make pecan pie cake.

STEP 1. Prepare the pecan pie filling.

In a small saucepan, combine the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, butter, and salt. Over medium heat, stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil. When it starts a rolling boil, continue to boil for one full minute.

Remove from heat and fold in Fisher Nuts Chopped Pecans. Set aside.

STEP 2. Make the cake batter.

Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Beat in softened butter until mixture is crumbly.

Add in eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and milk and beat JUST until combined.

STEP 3. Assemble the cake.

Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan.

Spoon about half of the pecan pie filling over the cake batter. Then fill with the remaining cake batter over the top.

Bake for 50 minutes, until lightly browned. 

Cool cake in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto a cake plate.

While the cake is warm (not hot), spoon remaining pecan pie filling over the top.

Recipe FAQs

How long is pecan pie cake good for?

Fresh cake can be stored for up to 4 days, covered, at room temperature.

Can you freeze Pecan Pie Cake?

Absolutely. You can freeze the cake whole by wrapping in plastic wrap, then in foil. Or, wrap slices separately in a plastic wrap then slide into a ziploc bag (this is my favorite way to freeze cake).

How do you serve pecan pie cake?

To serve this delicious pecan pie cake, drizzle thick caramel sauce on right before serving. I like to enjoy this cake warm, so heating up each slice of cake in the microwave for 15 seconds is perfect. Add a dollop of homemade whipped cream to each plate. ENJOY.
