Pecan Cake


2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1+1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup sunflower oil
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1+1/2 cup pecan nuts
2 tbs honey
3 tbs almond milk
1 tbs sunflower oil
2 tbs brown sugar

Preheat oven at 350°F. 
In a large bowl, cream sugar, salt and the eggs. Use a whisk to blend the ingredients well. Add oil and the almond milk. 

Mix well. Mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder in a separate bowl.

Add the dry ingredients in the eggs dough. Beat the mixture until no white bits of flour remain. 

Add chocolate chips. Mix well.

Line a loaf pan with parchment. Trick to make the paper stick to the pan: scrunch up the parchment and wet it thoroughly under a running tap water. Squeeze dry and the paper will drape around the pan's curves perfectly. Pour the dough into the pan.
To make the topping mix: heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Mix the honey, sugar and milk. Add pecan nuts. Cook while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts and is completely dissolved and the nuts are toasty. The process only takes about 5 minutes. 

Remove pan from the heat and cover the top of the dough with the hot candy nuts mixture.

Put the pan in the oven and bake the cake for about 45 minutes. The cake is ready when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
