2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1-1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs

Butter Pecan Frosting

Pour melted butter into a baking pan. Stir in pecans. Toast at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.
