Marlene's StoryI bought a box of Betty Crocker's Butter Pecan Cake mix. On the box I noticed that I could access this great recipe directly on the Betty Crocker web site. What a smashing success this cake was!
Try it; you won't be disappointed. Our friends loved it and I was asked to share the recipe with several of them.
