Add flour mixture. Beat on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Fold in pecans. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 70 to 75 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan. Cool thoroughly on wire rack. If desired, sift powdered sugar over cooled cake just before serving. Makes 12 servings.

This is an excellent Thanksgiving tea cake! And I can make it vegan by just subbing Earth Balance sticks for the butter.
