Woo hoo! I completed the first recipe from my list of "50 Recipes for 2011" - Butter Pecan Cake. The original title is Butter Pecan Pound Cake, but it's texture isn't really that of a pound cake to me ... it's much "fluffier" ... so I'm just going to call it Butter Pecan Cake. I don't think anyone will mind.
I'm generally a "from scratch" baker, but this cake doctors up a store-bought cake mix and store-bought frosting. I'm not opposed to giving a doctored up mix a try! Brought the cake to school for the birthday of one of my friends, and it got great reviews. So, here's the recipe. It's SUPER easy!! And don't we all love tasty recipes that are SUPER easy? Oh - sorry, no picture of this one. We ate it up so fast I didn't even get around to taking a picture!

1 box Betty Crocker Butter Pecan cake mix
1 can Coconut Pecan frosting
1/2 c. oil
1 c. water
Mix all ingredients (including the frosting ... yep, put it IN the batter) in one bowl. Beat about 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan (I used a tube pan). Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. (I had to bake mine 60 minutes.)
