Butter Pecan Pound Cake

Jenny Morrell Recipe

By Jenny Morrell redladycooking


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.

Paula..I am so honored to know my recipe was such an inspiration to me....and a great hint...I had not tried the lemon flavor but I certainly will now that you shared that idea with me!!! I am so happy your family likes it and I'm sure you were Betty Crocker well before this recipe!!!!!! Thanks.

Jenny....just to let you know that since your Butter Pecan cake has become my family's favorite, I started trying other cake mix and icing mixtures just to see what the results would be. These are what I have tried so far: German Choc and coconut/pecan icing w/ caramel glaze - family loved; Lemon Supreme and lemon incing w/ lemon glaze - I loved and those who love lemon loved also; Strawberry and butter cream icing w/ homemade strawberry glaze - family liked and was OK, but strawberry taste in the cake was too artificial for me; Duncan Hines Decadence Carrot cake mix that has a bag of real carrots and raisins and a can of butter cream icing in the mix w/ homemade cream cheese icing on top - family loved it, but the cake mix was too heavily spiced for me..........in short, your recipe is WONDERFUL as is, and is such a great base for so many different possibilities!!! Thanks for this most useful post. My family thinks I have become Betty Crocker! :-)
