This was a hit at a book study of ladies. Severely decadent. It's a keeper in my book. Next time though I think I'll make it in a 9x13 pan instead of the 10x15, to make it just a little thicker.

i made this and know it will be good...if it sets up. is it supposed to jiggle in the center after the last 35 min of baking?

I made this for a dinner party and it was wonderful. I couldn't rate it a 5 star kid's love it, kids would prefer something less nutty I think, but it's great. Don't panic when you pour the second layer on top, it sinks into the first and disappears. I had to use a 9x12 pan so I cooked it a little longer than this called for. It came out fine. Try it, it's a keeper!

I followed the recipe exactly, except that I cooked the first layer for 25 minutes before adding the second layer. After adding the second layer I baked my cake for 40 minutes, and it turned out so amazingly perfect. Everyone who has tried it just can NOT get over it. I used a 13x9 pan, and I think that you've got to add the extra time or it will not be cooked all the way through.

This recipe was a big hit with my husband since he's a huge pecan pie fan. I thought it was good, but very sweet and rich. I though it would have been better if it was a little thicker, but he said not to change a thing. It looks like I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. =)

This is very much like pecan pie without the crust. It is gooey and rich, but that's what I love about pecan pie! I made it with whole pecans, because that's how I make my pecan pie. Served it warm and it was just wonderful!

I made this for the Christmas dinner at our church and everyone loved it. It is so moist and gooey just like a pecan pie but much better than any pecan pie I've ever had. Definitely our new favorite dessert!
