You can make this with any flavor of cake mix you like. The possibilities are endless. It is great with lemon.

Get your glass of milk ready! This cake is ooey, rich, and full of butter pecan flavor. Using the pecan flavored cake mix is genius. Adding the pecans on top gives a little extra crunch. Make this for friends and family and it will disappear quickly!

Note: Watch your cake closely to not overbake. In our oven it was done in 35 minutes. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
