Has anyone ever tried this without the cocoa? My DH doesn't eat chocolate but loves pecans.

I have made this pecan cake several times. I frost it with a cream cheese frosting.
Pecan Cake
1 1/2 cups ground pecans
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger
1/8 t salt
9 eggs, separated
1 cup sweetener
1 t vanilla
Preheat oven to 325. Butter a spring form pan. (I skip this step and use a silicone bundt pan.) MIx together nuts, spices, and salt. Beat egg whites until stiff. Set aside. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until light. Add sweetener and vanilla to yolks, beating until creamy. Beat in nut mixture. Fold in egg whites. Put in pan. Bake for 50 min.

I don't know, but I think it would be more like 1 3/4 cup. Has anyone here ever measured it?

Just tried a new version which is also great.

I eliminated the orange juice and rind but added and extra T of brandy along with 1t almond extract and 2T grated unsweetened coconut. This is a completely different flavor path and was really good.
