Praline Pecan Chocolate Cake

Do you need an easy dessert recipe that cooks quickly yet looks like you spent much more time in the kitchen? Then this is your recipe! Perfect for entertaining, this cake makes a pretty presentation and tastes delicious too!

This cake uses a boxed chocolate cake mix as the base. Add in buttermilk and sour cream and a few more ingredients and then pop the cake into the oven for about half an hour.

The sauce looks complicated, but it only takes 3 minutes to cook, and all the ingredients go in one pan!

Bring the sauce to a boil and cook it for 3 minutes. Then remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes, so the sauce thickens. Drizzle the sauce over the top of the cooled cake. Let the sauce run down the sides and keep the pecans sitting on top of the cake. Yes, everyone will think you baked all day!

Instructions
Cake Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a Bundt pan and dust with cocoa powder.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all the cake ingredients and stir together. Beat with a mixer for 1 minute. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 37 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean or with crumbs. Cool in the pan for a few minutes and then turn out onto a cake plate.
Pecan Praline Glaze Directions
  1. In a medium pan on medium heat, start melting the butter. Add all the other ingredients and stir until well mixed. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Drizzle the glaze over the cake keeping all the pecans on the top of the cake.
Recipe Notes

Dusting the cake pan with cocoa powder keeps a chocolate cake from having white flour on the cooked crust.

You can make this cake without a mixer.  Whisk together all the ingredients except the cake mix.  Then sift in the cake mix and stir until combined.

Yield:  About 20 slices
