Jenny's Story

This is not my recipe but one shared from yet another church dinner. Gotta love the country church dinners. It's a remarkable cake and one I'm sure you'll also fall in love with.

Ingredients

1/4 c
confectioner's sugar
1 box
butter pecan cake mix (betty crocker)
3/4 c
vegetable oil
1 can(s)
coconut pecan frosting
1/4 c
chopped pecans
1 c
water
4
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Tube pan, bundt pan or 9x13 sheet pan may be used (I use a bundt pan). Spray pan well with cooking spray for best results.
Sprinkle bottom and sides with confectioner's sugar.
Drop chopped pecans in bottom of pan.
2
Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and water. Mix for 2 minutes or until smooth. Add frosting to batter and mix well.

Pour batter into pan on top of pecans. Bake for 1 hour or until cake springs back when lightly pressed.
Cool.
Turn out onto cake plate. Pecan side should be up when serving.

    I have been making this cake for years. It is awesome. I guess they have many names for it mine is Southern Praline Cake. It is the most requested cake to make. It doesn't hurt that it is so easy also. LOL!!

    I made the "Southern Praline Cake" recipe on here a few weeks ago and my family raved over it.............this is a wonderful recipe!! I was in a hurry, and was out of Baker's Joy to spray prepare my bundt pan with, so I made it in a 9x13..........it was excellent! I can't wait to make it as a bundt cake!

    I particularly like making it in my bundt pan because the scallops make it easy to cut perfect serving size pieces. Enjoy!

    I agree with you Jenny. It also makes a pretty presentation with the pecans on top . I dizzle a little glaze on top.
