I bought a box of Betty Crocker's Butter Pecan Cake mix. On the box I noticed that I could access this great recipe directly on the Betty Crocker web site. What a smashing success this cake was!
Try it; you won't be disappointed. Our friends loved it and I was asked to share the recipe with several of them.

How to Make BUTTER PECAN CAKE WITH APRICOTS

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. (325 degrees for dark or non-stick pan). Grease bottom only of a 9 x 13 pan with shortening or cooking spray. I use Pam Baking Spray.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and chopped apricots with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake 37 - 43 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
  4. Spread apricot preserves evenly over top of cake. Spread frosting over preserves. Garnish with pecan halves. Store at room temp, loosely covered.
