Bundt Cakes -Easy Recipe -Lemon - Pecan
Pecan Bundt Cake
This morning was rainy and cold, so I decided to bake my husband his favorite pecan cake. This is so simple to make and always turns out perfect.
- 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 in large bowl, including frosting mix and mix well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. It will be brown and you can use a toothpick to double check.
You can make a glaze with confectioner sugar and a little milk but the pecan cake is so moist it doesn't really need a glaze.
The recipe works well with lemon cake mix and lemon frosting as well, without the pecans of course. Use about 7/8 cup of water rather than a full cup, as the lemon frosting in thinner than the coconut pecan frosting. It is also good with strawberry and chocolate, following the same recipe as the lemon. I do make a glaze with confectioner sugar and lemon juice to enhance the lemon flavor. See picture below.
I don't think baking a cake can get simpler than this recipe. It stays moist longer than your average cake also. Enjoy!
