Lisa's Story

This is a favorite at the church suppers. Instead of baking it in a 9x13 pan, we usually bake it in a bundt pan.


butter pecan cake mix
1 c
1/2 c
1 can(s)
coconut frosting

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix the butter pecan cake mix, eggs, milk, and oil.
Add can of coconut frosting to the batter.
Pour into 9x13 baking pan.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. (If you use a bundt pan, bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Hey Deb, Sorry I missed this for so long ... when I do it I mix cake to instructions on box, then just lightly stir in icing ... yes it is the coconut/pecan frosting ... I like using the Bundt pan best for both cakes. But when I do the Butter Pecan cake I make it just like the recipe here by Lisa. it is wonderful ... amazing how they both taste so different!

Yes Deb it is the coconut/pecan frosting. I'm sure the German Chocolate version is the same.

First of all, when you say "coconut frosting" do you mean the coconut/pecan frosting usually used for a German Chocolate Cake?
Also, to SheilaJo: When making the German Chocolate cake mix version, is the recipe the same except using GC cake mix & GC frosting?
Both sound unique, easy, and delicious! I will be making both! Thanks!
