Southern Pecan Praline Cake is one awesome cake. A Butter Pecan Cake Mix is mixed with a tub of Coconut Pecan Frosting and more pecans. Then a spectacular Butter Pecan Glaze is drizzled over the top. This cake can certainly be served for dessert but it has the consistency of a coffeecake which makes it one awesome breakfast idea–especially for holiday breakfasts.


Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 1 box Betty Crocker butter pecan cake mix
  • 16 oz. can Betty Crocker Coconut Pecan Frosting
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 Cup canola or coconut oil
  • 1 Cup half-and-half for increased flavor instead of water
  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans

Butter Pecan Glaze

  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°.

Grease or spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine all the cake ingredients except for the chopped pecans. Mix well.

Add chopped pecans and stir to combine.

Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Butter Pecan Glaze:

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.

Add condensed milk and stir.

Heat thoroughly, then add chopped pecans.

Stir again to combine and remove from heat.
Spoon sauce over individual slices of cake or spread over the entire cake (much easier).


The Coconut Pecan Frosting is included in the cake batter. It is NOT an icing for the top of the cake nor included in the sauce.

The cake took 50 minutes to bake, although the original instructions said 30-40 minutes for a 9×13″ pan and 50 minutes for a bundt pan.
