Needing to bake a few things for some people this week, I remembered that one of the friends I was baking for loved this Butter Pecan Cake Mix that I find at Market Street. Followed the instructions in back of box except I used milk instead of water! Then for frosting I made a bowl of cream cheese frosting and topped them off with crushed Praline Pecans from Costco! These are great gifts and made quite the hit. Bake cake or cupcakes as directed in back of box. The Pralined pecans add such a rich flavor to each bite!
Cream Cheese Frosting
3 cups powdered sugar
4 oz softened cream cheese
4 oz softened unsalted butter
1/2 teas vanilla
1 to 3 tables of milk or cream to get to spreading consistency
Beat all ingredients until smooth and no lumps remain!
