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.


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

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
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.
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 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.
