Pecan Upside Down Cake

Upside down pecan cake is better than any pecan pie out there! It has all the flavors of a classic pecan pie but is way easier to make and more delicious too! I mean only a monster would turn down a tender cake with a sugary, caramelized pecan layer on top! To be honest, this might be the only dessert recipe you’ll need this holiday season.
