For the first time ever I created my own recipe. Seeing as how I've only been cooking for about 6 months I was floored at how amazing it came out. I looked up all kinds of recipes on line to get a general idea of how a recipe should be put together and then started playing with the amounts of what went in and added some ingredients, removed others, etc. Anyway, this is what I came up with:

In first bowl:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Second bowl:
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cup cream cheese
1-1/4 cup sugar

Mix in third bowl and then add to second bowl:
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk

After bowl three is mixed into bowl two really well, add in the dry ingredients into the bowl too. Once everything is really well blended, add in 2 cup of pecans totally chopped super fine (I bought the smallest diced pecans I could find them dumped them in a ziploc baggie and used a rolling pin to finish smashing them) and one ounce of raisins. I also added 1/2 cup rum, but that's optional. I just like the taste of rum in a cake.

Pour into a greased a 8x10 pan (I used 2 round cake pans instead) and bake in a 350 degree oven. It took mine about half an hour, maybe a little less. After it cooled I boiled 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup milk in a small pot on the stove until it had reduced some, let it cool really well and then drizzled it over the top. It turned out fantastic! Probably 9 million calories per bite, but worth every bit!

I had some much fun playing with this recipe I'm thinking of messing around with some others now. Maybe some of my bread recipes since they're my favorite anyway!

Excellent. I love that Almond filling for coffee cakes, and the poppy seed is yummy too. I just spread it around in the batter. It is made by Solo.
