1 pound cake


  • 1 ½ cups pecans, chopped

  • 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 3 cups white sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup butter

  • ¼ cup shortening (such as Crisco®)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 6 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan (such as Bundt ®).

  2. Mix pecans, butterscotch chips, and 2 tablespoons flour in a bowl until coated.

  3. Beat sugar, cream cheese, butter, shortening, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  4. Alternate mixing 1 egg and 1/2 cup of remaining flour at a time into the butter mixture, beating well after each addition to form a smooth batter. Fold in coated butterscotch chips and pecans to incorporate. Pour batter into tube pan.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours.

  6. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack. Cool completely before slicing.
