Pin this Post on Pinterest Share on Facebook

One of my wife’s favorite things to make for me (and one of my favorite things to eat!).

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Directions

1.  Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
2.  Melt butter, add sugars, and blend well by hand (no mixer).
3.  Add beaten eggs, stir well.
4.  Add flour and stir until all lumps are gone.
5.  Add pecans and vanilla.
6.  Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 baking dish.
7.  Bake approximately 40 to 50 minutes being cautious not to over cook.  You want them to remain chewy, hence the name!

  1. How great would a couple of these be right now!!!!

  2. I make these too. Sometimes I make a caramel icing to put on them. Makes them even better.

  3. I made these the other night, but I only made half a batch. I though a full batch would be way too much for just me and the husband. WRONG! I should have made a full batch…they are addicting! Now I need to make more!

    These are the best! It was even tastier because Stacey made them! I will serve on any committee necessary to eat these tasty treats! Hopefully I will have time to make my own this weekend, probably not as good as stacey’s but I’ll give it my best shot!

  5. OMG, my grandmother used to make this for me and my sisters every summer when we came to spend our summer vacation with her.

  6. oh, oh my!! :)

  7. I found a recipe similar to this but it called for 4 eggs instead of 2, and it was called “cornbread cake”. To me it tasted more like a blondie, and that’s what we named it when I made it this morning at the bakery I bake for lol! It was just too confusing to call it by its given name! The front of house openers looked at me like I had two heads when I told them it was “cornbread”. Bless their hearts.

  8. Scrumptious, melt-in-your mouth favorite…who could resist!

  9. Someone said they made a caramel icing. Could you share the recipe?

  10. Shay Billings says:

    I have the exact recipe but it calls for 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Have you ever baked these with cinnamon? It’s really delicious. Will have to try it without cinnamon for a change.

    Thank you for all the great recipes, hints, tricks and secrets. I love reading your blogs/posts too! :)

    I made these today. OMG …. I gotta get them out if the house. They are scrumptious. I could make myself sick eating them.
