Place the five dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and make a well in the center
Pour the five liquid ingredients into the well and mix thoroughly (I use an electric mixer)
Add chopped pecans and mix with a spoon until thoroughly blended
Grease pans and pour mixture into:
One Bundt Pan or Three - 8.4 x 4.4 x 2.7 Loaf Pans
Pierce the center to make sure it is done, prior to removing from oven, as ovens and styles of pans vary.
GIFT GIVING: We place loaf-size cakes on small, inexpensive silver trays we purchase at the Dollar Store. Then we wrap in cellophane, similar to the way a fruit basket is wrapped, and tie with wired ribbon. See photo below.
