How to make it

  • Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • I know I say this all the time but it bears repeating for the new cooks out there, I love the nonstick spray that has flour in it for baking.
  • In a medium bowl (or your stand mixer bowl), combine all the cake ingredients except for the chopped pecans.
  • Don't forget to add the tub of coconut pecan frosting. That goes into the cake batter too!
  • I just dump it all in there then let the mixer do the work.
  • Once it's all combined, stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
  • Pour batter into greased baking dish.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes.
  • As with most baked goods, oven times vary but cake should spring back to the touch and be golden brown.
  • And if you insert a toothpick into the middle it should come out clean.
  • This cake is perfectly good just like this.
  • It is moist and yummy.
  • But we're gonna take it up a notch with some butter sauce.
  • In a small pot over medium heat, melt 2 tbsp. butter.
  • Pour in can of sweetened condensed milk with the melted butter and stir.
  • Continue to stir until heated thoroughly, then add 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
  • Stir again then take off heat.
  • Then spoon this deliciously yummy sauce over individual slices of cake.
  • I pour the sauce over the individual slices instead of just pouring it over the whole cake because I love to be able to scoop up some of the sauce off my plate as I eat it and I don't want the sauce to just become part of the cake.
  • But if you are feeding a crowd, it may be easier to pour the sauce over the entire cake before serving. This sauce takes this cake from yum to yowsers!
  • Cook's Note: You can also make this in a bundt pan. Bake for about 50 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
