Delicious Southern Pecan Bundt Cake

My Picture and this is a delicious, moist cake.
My Picture and this is a delicious, moist cake.

Southern Pecan Praline Pecan Cake

This cake recipe takes only a couple of minutes to make and the texture is something like a pound cake. The taste is delicious. I have taken this to many potluck dinners and there is never a piece leftover.

1 box butter pecan cake mix

¾ cup vegetable oil

1 can coconut pecan frosting mix

1 cup water

4 eggs

1 cup pecan pieces

Spray Bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients, including frosting mix and mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. It just doesn't get easier than this.

You can make a glaze with confectioner sugar and a bit of milk if you like. The cake is very moist and really doesn't require frosting.

This recipe works well with lemon cake mix and lemon frosting without the pecans also.

Summary

These recipes are a group of easy to make and they are all delicious. They are particularly good in cold weather but certainly can be used year round. The cake is particularly unique and if you like pecans you will love this recipe.

Happy dining!

Ehern, Yes, I have always had the bundt cake come out of the pan perfectly with using Pam spray on the pan. The chicken pie also usually looks as good and it always tastes good. Thank you Bpop, Hello, Hello and Ehern for your comments.

Pamela,

I just love chicken or turkey pot pie. There used to be some pretty good frozen ones. It seem that today the frozen ones are pretty lame, and it's hard to cook for one.

I don't see why Tom could't use one of those very large muffin tins and make them individually and freeze them. They would be the perfect size for a single meal for one person.
