Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking pan and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine flour and soda. In a large bowl, blend sugar and butter to form a grainy paste. Add syrup, egg and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Add flour mixture and pecans. Blend at low speed just until combined. Pour batter into a baking pan and smooth top with spatula. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then invert onto cooling rack; cool completely before frosting. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Add brown sugar and sorghum, beating until smooth. Reduce mixer speed and slowly add confectioners’ sugar, mixing until smooth.
