Thanks to all the ladies in my class this afternoon! Everyone finished their little book in class and I think they turned out adorable!
I brought cupcakes this afternoon and everyone wanted the recipe so I am posting it for everyone's enjoyment. My Mom makes this in a bundt pan but it seemed to work well for cupcakes too. I drizzled a little caramel ice cream topping on top but this cake is great on it's own too.
Southern Praline Pecan Cake
1 cup water
1 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9 or 10 inch Bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Combine the cake mix with the frosting, eggs, oil, water and 1/2 of the pecan pieces. Mix until combined.
- Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 of pecans in the prepared Bundt pan then pour in the cake batter.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
I like to toast the pecans before adding them. Let the cake cool completely before taking it out of the pan as it tends to fall apart when warm.
