This easy raisin pecan loaf cake is always a hit when I serve it.

Raisin Pecan Loaf Cake The Southern Lady Cooks

I love this loaf cake because it’s super easy. Plus, it makes two loaf pans so you have an extra to give to a neighbor or a friend or serve them both! The cake is made with a yellow cake mix and delicious spices. You probably have everything on hand already. I love when I can just whip up a dessert with what is in my pantry. When you need a no-fuss dessert…this is it! This loaf cake is also wonderful with coffee in the morning.

Ingredients Needed for Raisin Pecan Loaf Cake

Yellow cake mix






Vegetable oil




Recipe Notes: If you’re not a fan of pecans, you can certainly use any nuts you like.  We like this cake sprinkled with powdered sugar but it would also be great with this glaze.

If you’re a fan of loaf cakes, you may also want to try our Pineapple Coconut Loaf cake. it has fantastic reviews.
