Pecan Gooey Cake | Domestic B(i)atch

11.23.16

It’s Thanksgiving Eve and I am in full prep mode. In the span of last night I made the layers of a pumpkin cake, the hazelnut crust for a cranberry curd tart, and a pecan gooey butter cake.  Anything that has the word “gooey” before “cake” has got my attention.  And the smell alone has convinced me to make this cake over and over again.  I’m lucky enough to enjoy a Friendsgiving tonight, and Thanksgiving evening with my husband to cook dinner tomorrow.  I’m usually someone who has to work Thanksgiving evening, and while I love sleeping in, there’s something disheartening when you have to serve other families on a holiday that’s supposed to be centered around your own loved ones. This year I’m working during the day.  I’m so grateful this year I don’t have to run after 9 or 10 pm to a friends left over festivities or find my husband on the couch patiently awaiting  my arrival home after having to enjoy Thanksgiving stag at a friend’s how who was kind enough to have him over. We get a Thanksgiving night together. And no matter how the mashed potatoes or the glazed carrots turn out, I am immensely grateful for that.
