This cake is awesome if you love fudge and nuts.

This is a recipe I found on a can of Pillsbury Frosting 30 years ago. I baked it up until 10 years ago when I lost the recipe which I recently found. You can use whatever cake mix and frosting brand you want, just get the correct flavors.

How to Make Bottoms Up Cake


  • 1Heat oven to 350 F.
  • 2Grease and flour 13 x 9 inch pan. (I spray my pan with Baker's Joy instead; it is a vegetable oil spray with flour.)
  • 3Spread frosting into the bottom of prepared pan.

    Pour batter over frosting in pan.
