Butter Pecan Crunch Cake

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

1 egg

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.
