Did you know that today is National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day? If you didn’t, don’t worry neither did I but I figured, hey it’s not such a bad day to celebrate especially if it means that you get to stuff your face with some of the best things on this planet. I’m talking pecan nuts and chocolate! Man, I love pecan nuts there is just something about this specific ingredient but that just makes any biscuit, cake, ice-cream, sweet, nougat etc taste awesome! Wouldn’t you agree? They’re just so warm and toasty and this cake that I’m about to share with you will pretty much make you feel exactly that, warm, toasty and amped that your face and stomach is full of soft spongy delicious cake. Damn it I love cake. I do. I love it like ants love a picnic basket, lightening loves ugly thatched roofs and bears love unsuspecting hikers. Hopefully, you get where I’m going with this.
Annnyyywwaaayy for today I thought that I’d put my own spin on a Chocolate Pecan Nut Pie and instead make a Pecan Nut, Chocolate and Maple Syrup Layer Cake because, one I didn’t feel like pie and two as I so creatively and rather confusingly explained above, I love cake. So Pecan Nut, Chocolate and Maple Syrup Layer Cake it is!
