Maple Pecan Squares

This is the second recipe that Lindsay asked for. They are maplebed and breakfast Cape May syrup flavored cake squares with a handful of crushed pecans in the cake. Of course, you could use any nuts in the cake, or no nuts, or raisins, or any chopped dried fruit. You could also substitute honey for the maple syrup for a different flavor.

2 cups all-purpose flourbed and breakfast Cape May NJ

3/4 cup oat bran

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoons baking sodaCape May bed and breakfast

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup well-shaken buttermilk

1/3 cup maple syrupCape May NJ bed and breakfast

1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

2 large eggs

1 cup (I use my hand to measure, so it’s probably closer to 2 cups) pecans

For the icing:

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

About 1 cup maple syrup

 

350 F.  8”x8” metal baking pan, lined with cooking parchment and sprayed with cooking spray.

Whisk together flour, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, maple syrup, butter, and eggs. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until it springs back when lightly prodded with a fingertip.

To make the icing, beat the confectioner’s sugar with an electric mixer adding enough maple syrup to make it flow.

Cool cake. Turn out onto serving platter. Cut into sixteen squares, and then drizzle with maple icing.
