Cake mix and purchased frosting pair up with some extras to create a scrumptious pumpkin and praline indulgence.

Ingredients

1/2
cup butter or margarine
1/4
cup whipping cream
1
cup packed brown sugar
3/4
cup coarsely chopped pecans
1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
1
cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2
cup water
1/3
cup vegetable oil
4
eggs
1 1/2
teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
Caramel topping, if desired
Additional coarsely chopped pecans, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, stir together butter, whipping cream and brown sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until butter is melted. Pour into two ungreased 9- or 8-inch round cake pans; sprinkle evenly with 3/4 cup pecans.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, pumpkin, water, oil, eggs and 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Carefully spoon batter over pecan mixture in each pan.
  • 3 Bake 41 to 47 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 Stir remaining 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice into frosting. To assemble cake, place 1 layer, praline side up, on serving plate. Spread with half of the frosting. Top with second layer, praline side up; spread remaining frosting to edge of layer. Drizzle with caramel topping and additional pecans. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
Tips  

Cool layer cakes in their pans on cooling racks for 5 minutes. This keeps the cake from breaking apart while it's too warm and tender.
