Cool and cut. Double Fudge CakeThis cake is a copycat version of Cracker Barrel’s famous recipe. I love a good pop cake (or soda or coke as some folks refer to it) and this one doesn’t disappoint. The fun thing about this cake is that it is made entirely on the stovetop! Just grab a saucepan and you are well on your way to a delicious chocolate cake with a dreamy chocolate frosting! Have your own homemade buttermilk on hand!Chocolate Pecan FrostingOh my word I can’t say enough good things about the flavor and texture of this amazing frosting! Again, we are back to the stovetop to prepare this delectable creation. Start withand let it come to a boil. Then add the vanilla, chopped pecans, and confectioner’s sugar. There is a lot of sugar, so I switched from a whisk to a spatula at this point. Stir until everything is incorporated and then pour over the hot cake. The frosting soaks into the cake beautifully! I usually let the frosting settle and cool for at least an hour before serving, but if you are daring you could certainly dive right in! It will be an ooey gooey mess, which is my favorite kind.(I think even Brad’s wife likes this cake!)
