If you know me well, you know I don't often bake. I'm a good cook, but not a stellar baker. Man of the house's (MOTH) birthday was Sunday and I bought a cake that really wasn't very good. I woke up Monday and felt he deserved better.
MOTH has always raved about his grandma's Maple Pecan Chiffon cake and I decided that was the cake I would bake. I've never baked a chiffon cake but it really wasn't hard. It turned out pretty decent and tasted, well, just this short of amazing! MOTH loved it. Gave me the thumbs up and that was worth the dishes that filled my sink.
Want to bake your own? Google "Maple Pecan Chiffon cake" and you will get dozens of recipes and they are all basically the same.
*** I sort of like MOTH as a name for that guy. Might just keep it. ;)
