From The New Best of BetterBaking.com, Marcy Goldman, Whitecap Books, 2009, this is a lofty spice cake, perfect for Thanksgiving or any coffee klatch occasion. This is a fine-grained, delicate cake that's also moist and gently spiced. It features a penuche-style sweet pecan brown sugar glaze. This is the recipe my testers bring to work, volunteer venues, schools and the book club when they want to get that wow! reception.
