These Mini Butter Pecan Cakes with an incredible Caramel Pecan Drizzle are so perfect for sharing with family and friends! They’re decadent and just the right size to devour!
When I was on my Chicago girls’ trip with my in-laws and sisters-in-law recently, many of our conversations were centered around food. Can I just say, we love yummy things to eat!! I think we were extra hungry from all the walking we did while shopping the Miracle Mile. 🙂
One of the things we talked about on more than one occasion were some divine mini Butter Pecan Cakes they had all enjoyed at a restaurant while traveling to our final destination. I had taken a separate connecting flight, so I unfortunately missed out on this. But, all they had to do was mention the name and I couldn’t stop thinking about that dessert! They raved about the amazing caramel drizzle that sunk into the little hole in the center and oozed out when they cut into it. I was drooling just hearing about it! I knew I had to get a mouthful of it ASAP!
So I got home and got busy recreating it in my own kitchen with my Silpat Silicone Mini Fluted Cake Pan. It makes eight beautiful little cakes with fluted edges and golden finishes! Don’t even get me started on the remarkably tender centers! This premium 13×18 nonstick pan enables the cakes to bake to perfection without using cooking sprays! This pan, along with five other varieties in Silpat’s perfect baking collection, are available online only at Williams-Sonoma.
After cooling for a short bit, the cakes release so easily from their molds, just ready to be hit with the caramel pecan drizzle! I can’t even begin to describe how fantastic these little treasures are to the taste buds!
These are just begging to be taken to a party! The guests will be raving about them the entire evening! They’re impressive and professional looking, yet super simple to create! Everything I love in a dessert!
These are so magnificent when served warm. They just about melt in your mouth! Of course you can store leftover cakes and caramel topping in the fridge, then just quickly microwave them to enjoy them at their maximum delectable potential!
I hope you get to enjoy these very soon! It’s a confection that will be on repeat at our house, for sure!
These would make a memorable addition to your Christmas or New Year’s Eve celebrations!
