Southern Praline Pecan Cake for Food Friday

I am joining Michael at Designs by Golllum for  Food Friday.
This is cake is so easy and so good, I don't even know where I found the recipe but It has become a favorite. You use a can of  coconut pecan frosting in the batter. The cake is so moist, it is unbelievable.

1 package of butter pecan cake mix
1 container of coconut pecan frosting
1 extra container of coconut pecan frosting for glaze, if you want a glaze on your cake.
4 eggs
3/4 cups vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 cup chopped pecans (divided)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 or 10 inch bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine the cake mix, frosting, eggs, oil, water and 1/2 cup of pecans. Mix until well combined.
I use a electric mixer to make it easier but on a low speed.
Sprinke the remaining nuts in the prepared bundt pan then pour in the cake batter.
Bake at 350* for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

You can serve it plain, but sometimes I buy an extra can of frosting, heat it in a saucepan until it becomes almost like a glaze, and drizzle over the cake, either way it is delicious. Also try it with Butter pecan ice   cream.  So Good !!!  : )
