  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans divided


  • Grease an 8 x 8 pan with butter and sprinkle the bottom of the pan with 1 /2 cup of chopped pecans. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Combine the milk and corn syrup in a bowl. Heat in the microwave or on the stove until lukewarm. Stir to dissolve the corn syrup.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl add the egg yolks to the brown sugar and whisk until light in color, about two minutes.
  • Add the water and melted butter to the brown sugar mixture and whisk again. Add the flour and mix until smooth.
  • Whisk the milk and vanilla extract mixture into the batter mixing until smooth.
  • Add the egg whites gradually, slowly using your whisk to combine them into the batter. If some egg whites are still visible that's okay.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle the rest of the pecans over the surface of the cake.
  • Place in the oven for about 50 minutes.
  • Let cool before cutting into squares and drizzling with caramel sauce (optional)
