Courtney is having a big party here tonight with all of her work friends and so I offered to make a treat for them. Lately Cort has been loving all things butter pecan so I thought I’d make a butter pecan cake. I found this one on a blog called “Eat at Home”, here is the link http://eatathomecooks.com/2011/01/butter-pecan-crunch-cake.html. It is delicious! Tastes like a butter pecan version of “Nutty Chocolate Chip Picnic Cake” which is on the blog and is one of Cort’s favorites. Bob and I just sampled a piece and then tried to convince Cort that it was terrible so that she wouldn’t serve it to her friends but she didn’t fall for it. 🙂
1 butter pecan cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
2/3 cup milk
2 – 4 tablespoons cold butter (I used 4)
1/2 cup pecans
1 cup toffee chips
1 Preheat oven to 350. Measure 1 cup of cake mix and put it in a bowl, save for later.
2 Beat remaining cake mix, melted butter, milk and egg until well combined. Pour into a greased 9 x 13″ pan.
3 Cut the cold butter into the cup of dry cake mix with a pastry blender or a fork to make crumbs. Stir in toffee chips and nuts. Sprinkle over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
