SOUTHERN PECAN PRALINE CAKE WITH BUTTER SAUCE

I’m gonna start this recipe by saying I am nuts about nuts. Alright now, get your brains outta the gutter! I’m talking about pecans and walnuts and macadamia – you name it. But my absolute favorite is the pecan. And if you love pecans like I do, then ooohhh doggie, you are in for a treat!slice, pecan praline cake with butter sauce and topped with chopped pecans

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE COCONUT?

I get this question a lot. All I’m gonna say is I have made this cake SO many times for coconut haters and they love it. You can’t even really taste the coconut that is in the frosting. However, if you’re the one making it and you know it’s in there, you almost are trying hard to taste it. Unfortunately, I have not found an acceptable substitute yet for this flavor and consistency. It’s the same frosting used for German chocolate cake. This cake is full of pecan flavor and the sauce just takes this cake over the top.Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce recipe from The Country Cook

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
For the cake:
butter pecan cake mix
coconut pecan frosting
eggs
oil
water
chopped pecans

For the sauce:
sweetened condensed milk
butter
chopped pecans
butter pecan cake mix, coconut pecan frosting, sweetened condensed milk, pecans, eggs, oil

HOW TO MAKE PECAN PRALINE CAKE WITH BUTTER SAUCE:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. I know I say this all the time but it bears repeating for the new cooks out there, I love Baker’s Joy Spray.Baker's Joy nonstick cooking spray

In a medium bowl (or your stand mixer bowl), combine all the cake ingredients except for the chopped pecans. Don’t forget to add the tub of coconut pecan frosting. That goes into the cake batter too! I just dump it all in there then let the mixer do the work.butter pecan cake mix, coconut pecan frosting, eggs, and oil in a large mixing bowl

Once it’s all combined, stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.chopped pecans added to pecan praline cake batter

I love the smell of this batter..mmmm. Pour batter into greased baking dish.

Bake for about 40 minutes. As with most baked goods, oven times vary but cake should spring back to the touch and be golden brown. And if you insert a toothpick into the middle it should come out clean.Southern Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce, slice
This cake is perfectly good just like this. It is moist and yummy. But we’re gonna take it up a notch with some butter sauce. I mean, it looks a little sad all by itself, don’t it? In a small pot over medium heat, melt 2 tbsp. butter. Pour in can of sweetened condensed milk with the melted butter and stir.

Continue to stir until heated thoroughly, then add 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Stir again then take off heat.chopped pecans added to butter and sweetened condensed milk in a sauce pan
Then spoon this deliciously yummy sauce over individual slices of cake. Southern Pecan Praline Cake made with a boxed cake mix and butter sauce
I pour the sauce over the individual slices instead of just pouring it over the whole cake because I love to be able to scoop up some of the sauce off my plate as I eat it and I don’t want the sauce to just become part of the cake. But you can definitely do that if you need to take this to a gathering.slice, pecan praline cake with butter sauce and topped with chopped pecans

Cook’s Note: If you are feeding a crowd, it may be easier to pour the sauce over the entire cake before serving. This sauce takes this cake from yum to yowsers! You can also make this in a bundt pan. Bake for about 50 minutes.Easy Southern Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce recipe
