If you love pecans, you will love this cake. I created this for Mother's Day because my mom loves pecans. Its a rich in pecan flavor cake topped with the most lusciously delicious pecan praline topping I could come up with. I worked from the idea of my praline recipe to create the topping and it tastes just like a praline. It's yummmtastic y'all!

How to Make Pecan Praline Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat over to 350 and spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray (Baker's Joy is best for cakes).
  2. Heat tub of frosting for about 30 second in the microwave to soften it.
  3. Put cake mix, eggs, oil, water, and frosting in mixing bowl. An electric mixer or stand mixer like Kitchen Aid would be best for this.
  4. Once all ingredients are combined, fold in pecan pieces.
  5. Pour batter into prepared 9x13 pan, bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.
  6. When cake is down and still hot, using a fork make holes in the cake in one inch intervals, all around the cake. Then pour topping on hot cake. Prepare topping while cake is in the oven.
  7. TOPPING
    In a saucepan, combine condensed milk, butter, brown sugar, caramel syrup over medium to low heat, stirring constantly.
  8. Let sauce reduce to a consistency of fudge...approximately to the temperature of 115 degrees. Remove from heat, add vanilla and pecans and stir.
  9. Pour sauce over cake that you have poked holes in. Pour slowly, the sauce is thick and won't soak into the holes quickly. Refrigerate cake and the topping will harden into a delicious pecan praline fudge. This cake is rich, hope you enjoy.
