1Preheat 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.
2Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and water. Mix for 2 minutes or until smooth. Add frosting to batter and mix well.
3Pour 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.
