Vanilla Bean Cake with Pecan Praline Glaze

The vanilla cake is perfectly moist as-is, but once the homemade cake is topped with the pecan praline glaze, it becomes entirely irresistible.

Vanilla Bean Cake with Pecan Praline Glaze

Directions

  1. Place rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan.
  2. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. of the salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl beat 1 cup of the butter and the granulated sugar on medium speed 3 to 5 minutes or until pale and fluffy, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, one at a time, on low speed for 1 minute after each addition. Beat in vanilla seeds and almond extract. Add half the flour mixture; beat until combined. Slowly add buttermilk in a stream, beating on low the entire time. Beat in remaining flour mixture until combined, scraping sides and bottom of bowl. Spoon batter into prepared pan; smooth top.
  4. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into cake comes out mostly clean, with a few moist crumbs. Transfer pan to a wire rack; let cake cool in pan 45 to 60 minutes. Remove cake from pan; cool completely.
  5. For Pecan Praline Glaze: In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, remaining 6 Tbsp. butter, the cream, and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, stirring over medium-low until melted and smooth, about 4 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; bring to boiling. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened; remove from heat. Coarsely chop half of the pecan halves; stir all pecans and the vanilla into glaze. Let cool slightly until thick and spoonable. (If glaze sets too much while cooling, reheat over low heat and add a bit of cream.) Spoon glaze over cake; let rest until set.
