A cake mix makes this cake super easy to prepare. The cake is baked with a pecan pie filling.
- 1 yellow cake or butter cake mix, 2-layer size
- 4 large eggs, divided
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
Heat the oven to 325° F (162° Celsius). Grease and flour a 9x12x2-inch baking pan.
Mix cake mix, 1 egg, and melted butter until well blended. Reserve 2/3 cup of the batter and set aside. Spread the remaining batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, mix the reserved 2/3 cup of batter with the corn syrup, 3 eggs, the brown sugar, vanilla, and chopped pecans. Pour the pecan filling over the baked crust and return to the oven. Bake for about 50 minutes longer, until set.
Cool and cut into squares.
