This is the easiest and best cake. It doesn't even need icing.
Mix all ingredients well. Pour into tube pan or bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
I have made this with a German chocolate cake mix but the butter pecan cake mix is best.

Sift first 4 ingredients together into bowl. Stir in brown sugar. Add shortening and 3/4 cup milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Add eggs, remaining 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes longer. Stir in 3/4 cup pecans. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45-50 minutes. Frost with cream cheese frosting. Sprinkle with additional pecans.

Do you mix the container of frosting IN with the cake batter? Or just use it for frosting?
No, I wouldn't mix in the frosting with the other ingredients when making the cake. It was added just in case you wanted to frost the cake later.
Do you have a recipe for cream cheese frosting to go with the pecan cake? Thank You, Joyce
This is great! Very moist! A lady at the supermarket told me about this recipe and how much she and her husband liked it so much, so I got a box of cake mix, but no recipe for it was on the box. I started looking online and found your recipe and knew it was the one she had told me about. Thanks!
