The colors of Mardi Gras—not to mention a delicious cinnamon-pecan swirl—make this tasty cake festive enough for any party.
Why This Recipe Works
This traditional cake, made during carnival season in New Orleans, is made from a rich, brioche-like dough with a buttery cinnamon sugar filling accented with toasted pecans. We bake this celebratory cake in a Bundt pan and finish it with decorating sugars in the signature Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold.
