Cake with Frosting in the Batter

I found this Butter Pecan Pound Cake recipe in one of my old cookbooks. The cake is made with cake mix and a can of frosting. It sounded SO interesting that I had to try it ASAP. WOW! It was delicious! SO moist and full of flavor. We both LOVED it. I couldn’t believe something so simple could taste so great. This is great for potlucks or any upcoming holiday dinners.

How to Make Butter Pecan Pound Cake

There are only 5 ingredients in this cake – cake mix, water, oil, eggs and frosting. Simply mix everything together with a hand mixer, pour into a Bundt cake pan, and bake.

  • DO NOT make the cake mix as directed on the box. Only use the ingredients I listed below and follow those directions. You are going to use the cake mix DRY.
  • Do not substitute the can of frosting for another flavor. You must use coconut pecan frosting.
  • I use Baker’s Joy or Pam with Flour to grease and flour the Bundt pan.
  • You can bake this cake in any type of cake pan you prefer. Refer to the box of cake mix for approximate cooking times.
  • Can Butter Pecan Cake be made in advance? Yes! This cake can be made a day or two in advance and stored in an air-tight container.
  • Can Butter Pecan Cake be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the baked cake for later. Cool the cake and wrap in plastic wrap and foil. Remove the cake at least an hour before serving and let thaw on the countertop.

  1. I'm from the South,w have used this recipe for years now!! Only difference is milk versus water. Great the way it is or base to put your own spin on it!!

  2. Hi, I found your site by accident and it is amazing and I have made your keto cheesy biscuits that are amazing. My husband said this is our new bread. I tried the skillet but it ran together so this time I tried the loaf pan. Perfect. I seem to have an issue with printing your recipes, there is big gaps in your recipe and wondered how do you print the recipes with no gaps? Can't wait to print some of the cake recipes. 'And I like some other people would love some more keto recipes since your bread or biscuits are soo tasty, Thanks

  3. My bunt cake pan sucks and I have yet to purchase a good one. Do you think this could be made as cupcakes with adjusted baking time?

  4. OMG! I am baking it now and it is bubbling over and spilling all over my oven as I type. Are you sure the amount of liquid is correct? It smells fabulous. What a mess 🙁

  5. Is there a reason you say use a handheld mixer? I usually use my KitchenAid stand mixer making cakes. I do have a handheld mixer if that is best.

  6. My neighbor gave me this recipe yrs ago, with a few changes. Hers had chopped pecans in the batter and baked in a 9×13. I'm not at home but think the frosting was cream cheese topped with toasted pecans, coconut and drizzled with caramel topping. This is a super great cake!! War Eagle Steph, your not hollering enough!!!!

  7. This is such a fascinating idea. I've never seen the cake mix or the frosting but can't wait to try another combo! Great idea!

  8. Yay! I have a box of Spice Cake mix and some of that frosting in my cabinet. All I have to do is add nuts! Thanks Steph!
    =^,^=

    1. I've only made this as written. Without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty what other frosting will work. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
