Upside-Down Georgia Pecan Cake


  For the topping:

 2 cups toasted pecans, chopped 1 cup shredded coconut  2/3 cup brown sugar 6 tablespoons butter, melted  2 teaspoons ground cinnamon  2 teaspoons vanilla extract  1/2 teaspoon salt

  For the cake:

  2 cups all-purpose flour  1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup milk  2/3 cup butter, softened  2 large eggs  1 tablespoon baking powder  2 teaspoons vanilla  1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9×13-inch pan with aluminum foil, making sure it hangs over the sides a bit, then grease with non-stick spray.

Spread pecans, brown sugar and 1 cup of the coconut in the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt, and drizzle with vanilla extract and melted butter.

In a medium bowl, beat together the 2/3 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar on medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Continue mixing on low, and add eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla, mixing until thoroughly combined..

Add baking powder and salt, mixing on low until incorporated. Add 1/2 of the flour, followed by milk, and then remaining flour, mixing well after each addition.

Pour batter over pecan mixture in prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.

Run a knife around the sides of the pan to loosen and let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes. Invert cake onto a platter, using foil overhang as needed. Let cool 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
