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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Butter Pecan Gooey Cake

Test Kitchen Tips
Watch your cake closely to not overbake. In our oven, it was done in 35 minutes.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix by hand the dry cake mix, 1 egg, and melted butter. Pat into the bottom of the greased pan and set aside.
  3. With electric mixer, beat softened cream cheese, 2 eggs, and vanilla well. Add confectioners sugar and beat well. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  5. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. You want the center to be a little gooey, so don't over bake.
