I’ve always liked baking for as long as I can remember. Sometimes I bake from scratch from family recipes, and other days I have to take a short cut, when I am short on time. I like to turn to the Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mixes. Not only because they offer wonderful, mouthwatering flavors but they are easy and straight forward and can be used in a different number of ways. During this time around, I decided to use Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix: Butter Pecan . Now personally I’ve always passed this cake flavor by each time I’m in the baking section. I’ve been skeptical about it simply because I have never really heard of a Butter Pecan cake. I’ve heard of a Butter Pecan pie and even the ice cream from blue bell, but not exactly a cake. But like always, I am a open minded person when it comes down to trying new things. So to say I geared up, and readied my taste buds to try
this cake mix.
Usually when I get cake mixes, I get frosting to match like on the box. So with this one I bought a container of cream cheese frosting. And to better add to the effect of this cake, I also gathered ingredients to make a topping to go with this cake and to spice it. Which consisted of dark brown sugar, raw whole pecans, and ground cinnamon. The ingredients needed for this cake is one cup of water, a half cup of vegetable oil and three eggs. Now my only issue with this cake mix is that they don’t really specify what size eggs to use. Judging from the picture on the back of the box, I would say to use medium eggs, but’s that not for certain. So I just used large eggs that I already had and hoped for the best.
What I enjoyed about this cake mix is the simplicity of the instructions. There are three different sections that are broken down. Since I used two round eight inch metal pans, I preheated my oven to three hundred and fifty degrees, and then once it heated, I turned down the oven to about three hundred and twenty-five. I’m not recommending that everyone do this when trying this cake mix, since everyone’s oven is entirely different. I made sure to spray on my favorite Baking Spray to keep the cake from sticking.
The next step is to beat the cake mix. Add the one cup of water, the half cup of oil and the three eggs in a large bowl. In this step, I slightly mixed the ingredients with a mixing spoon, then as the box instructed I mixed with a mixer on low speed for thirty seconds and then on medium speed for two minutes. Once the batter was fully blended and smooth with no lumps and clumps, I poured it into my two cake pans and slid them in the oven to bake for about thirty minutes. After that I let the cake layers cool for fifteen ...
