snow and cake

The Ponderosa was covered with snow this morning.  It was pretty while it lasted but by lunch the temperature had risen enough to melt it all away.

And here's my new favorite cake made from a recipe I found on Pinterest!

Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce

1 (15 0z) box Butter Pecan Cake Mix
1 (16 0z) tub Coconut Pecan Frosting
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans(I left these out since there were nuts in the frosting)

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

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!
Mix well then stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Pour batter into greased baking dish.

Bake for about 40 minutes.

For the 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.
