For the Cake

1 box Betty Crocker butter pecan cake mix
16 oz. can Betty Crocker Coconut Pecan Frosting
4 large eggs
3/4 cup of canola or coconut oil
1 cup of half-and-half for increased flavor instead of water
1/2 cup of chopped pecans

for the Butter Pecan Glaze

14 oz. can sweeten condensed milk
3 Tbs butter
1/2 cup of chopped pecans


To make the cake:

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Ready a 9 x 13-inch baking dish by greasing or spraying it with a cooking spray.

Step 3: Combine the butter pecan cake mix, Coconut Pecan Frosting, eggs, canola or coconut oil, and 1 cup of half-and-half. Mix the ingredients until incorporated.

Step 4: Then, add the chopped pecans. Stir them to combine.

Step 5: Now, pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.

Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 40 to 50 minutes. Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cake, when it comes out clean, it’s done.

To make the Butter Pecan Glaze:

Step 7: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Step 8: Stir in the condensed milk.

Step 9: Heat the butter with the condensed milk thoroughly before adding the chopped pecans.

Step 10: Stir the mixture well to combine, then, remove the saucepan from the heat.

Step 11: Spread the butter pecan glaze over the entire cake or spoon the sauce over the individual pieces. Serve and enjoy!

Side note: The baking time varies. When using a 9 x 13-inch pan, bake the cake for 30 to 40 minutes, and for a bundt pan, it’s 50 minutes.
