I recommend using organic sugar which has a milder sweetness without the harshness of bleached white sugar. I juice organic lemons/oranges for the glaze, organic fruit just has more flavor and if you haven't tried any you are missing out. Same for the pecans. Try fresh, organic. If you are going to take the time to prepare a recipe that is labor-intensive, fresh flour and the best ingredients make a difference. This is a delicious, moist and firm cake recipe that my mother-in-law would have had in her composition notebook. She taught me to cook and she would have loved this recipe. It's old-fashioned goodness. Bless you.
