Praline Poke Butter Cake with Butter Pecan Frosting was a surprise that started while visiting my dad in southern Arkansas one summer. This is a buttery pecan butter cake raised from a base of Betty Crocker butter pecan cake mix. what can i say We Southerners love everything with butter pecans!


Since this spot was posted years ago, this recipe has remained a star on Google and has been pinned over 300,000 times on Pinterest! He really is a keeper!


There are many things I always look forward to when I go out of town to visit my parents.

Magazine reading marathons with Southern Livings and Better Homes and Gardens for my mom (since I decided not to subscribe a few years ago).

1-Dad's breakfast

2-Mom's dinner

3-Chick deli chicken


The way my dad always suggests I cook something "sweet" (like we haven't eaten our weight in home cooking, fried chicken, and spudnuts)

Um...if our tours seem to focus on food, that's because they do.

On my last visit, when Dad hinted at something sweet, the delicious Pecan Butter Cake - Cake Mix Recipe - was born!



°(15-ounce) box butter pecan cake mix

°1 can (16 ounces) of Coconut Cream

°4 large eggs

°3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil

°1 cup of milk

°1/2 cup chopped American walnuts.

+The sauce:

°1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

°1/4 cup of butter


Preheat oven 350°F & greased 9" * 11" baking dish.

In a large bowl, add cake mix, coconut cream, eggs, oil and milk. Beat the dough with an electric mixer until well blended.

Stir in the pecans and pour the mixture into the prepared pan.

Bake 30 to 40 minutes.

Remove the cake from the oven and use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake. Save time to make the sauce:

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add condensed milk and stir well.

Bring to a boil, then add the chopped pecans. Remove from the heat and slowly pour the sauce over the cake, letting it drip into the holes and down the sides.

Leave the cake to cool before cutting & serving.

Enjoy !
