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!
HOW TO MAKE PECAN PRALINE CAKE WITH BUTTER SAUCE:
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray. I know I say this all the time but it bears repeating for new cooks, I love Baker’s Joy spray.
In a medium bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer), mix together all of the cake ingredients except for the chopped pecans. Don’t forget to add the tube of coconut-pecan glaze. It goes into the cake batter too! I pour everything into the bowl and let the mixer do the work.
