"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Momma Kat


1/2 cup butter
2 cups light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk or 1 1/3 cups liquid whey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups All-Purpose Flour

6 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 to 1 cup diced pecans

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9" x 13" cake pan.
Beat the butter and brown sugar together till smooth.
Add the eggs, beating till smooth.
Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla extract.
Add the baking soda, salt, and flour to the wet ingredients, beating till thoroughly combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the cake for 35 minutes. Towards the end of the baking time, prepare the topping.
Stir the butter and the sugar together. Add the milk, pecans, and salt. The glaze will be thick but pourable.
Top the baked cake with the topping, and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven. The topping will look very runny. You can eat the cake hot, with the glaze still gooey; or let the cake sit at room temperature for a few hours, by which time the glaze will have set.
Yield: 24 servings.
