Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease and flour a 9-inch fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt(R)).
  2. Mix butter pecan cake mix, water, vegetable oil, eggs, bananas, pecans, and toffee baking bits in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into prepared tube pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cake is lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool the cake in the tube pan for 15 minutes. Place a serving platter on top of the pan and invert pan. Gently lift pan from cake and let cake finish cooling.
  4. Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until combined. Bring to a boil, stir in milk, and return to a rolling boil. Remove from heat; beat confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract into butter mixture to make a smooth frosting. Spread over cooled cake and allow to stand until frosting has set, about 15 minutes.

I loved this cake- changed water to buttermilk- toasted pecans first- pictures are before frosting with caramel frosting

I made this in a bunt pan, I did put cream cheese frosting on it (my family loves that frosting) and added the sauteed pecans to this. Everyone loved it!

Very Heavy Cake. Did not rise!

Delicious! Made for my picky son and he loved it! Will make again for sure.

Great flavor, but mine fell apart at the slightest touch. Not sure what happened.....could be my high altitude? Probably wont try again.
