Steal the hearts of loved ones with this from scratch Nutty Graham Picnic Cake. It's perfect for your table or picnic basket and it's got all the right flavors that'll make 'em go "yum!"

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup cinnamon-flavored graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans, toasted and divided
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 4 to 6 teaspoons milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat butter in a large bowl at medium speed with an electric beater until creamy; gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
  2. Combine flour and cracker crumbs; add to butter mixture alternately with orange juice, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix at low speed after each addition until blended. Stir in 1 cup pecans. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan.
  3. Bake 48 to 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Cake will not rise to top of pan.) Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove from pan, and let cool completely on wire rack
  4. Stir together powdered sugar and enough milk to make a good drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cake, and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans.

  • Cinnamon-flavored graham crackers enrich this cake with homespun flavor. But don't worry if you don't have the cinnamon variety; just stir 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in with the flour.

I made this cake today and it is like a carrot cske without carrots.It is good

How do I make my own "self rising flour" ?

Hi there! To make your own self rising flour, just use 1 cup of flour, 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix well and you're ready to go! Enjoy!

Can one use a bundt pan in place of a tube pan?

it appears you can use any shape pan you's all about making sure it doesn't stick in it.

I thank it will be so good.
