I told you I would be back today with this delicious recipe from Southern Living!
2/3 cup chopped pecans (I had walnuts, so that's what I used)
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp sugar
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1 bag mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour Bundt pan.
Chop pecans or walnuts.
Stir together first 3 ingredients with a fork.
Sprinkle in Bundt pan (now, mine didn't exactly sprinkle, but no need to worry, end results still perfect!)
Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy.
Add eggs, beating until blended.
Add flour mix alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition.
Beat in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
Remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely (about an hour).
Garnish with whipped cream and cherries if desired.
