  • Butter a 9-inch-square cake pan, and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  • In the bowl of electric mixer, combine butter and sugars. Beat until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping sides occasionally. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Fold in butterscotch chips and toasted pecans.

  • Using an offset spatula, spread batter into pan. Bake until surface is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into center comes out barely clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

so easy and delicious-a family favorite. I used 1/2 choc chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips-perfect!

Very quick and easy. Delicious. I used choc chips. I think butterscotch would be too sweet with the amount of sugars...
