Tonight (change that to last night - it's already Friday!) I went to bunco. I know, you're thinking, didn't you just go to bunco not too long ago - it seems like you spend a lot of time with your friends?
Why, yes, I did but that last bunco was a make-up bunco. Tonight was the night we normally have it. Okay, let's get to the important part of bunco - dessert!
You're going to want this cake - right now, or for breakfast tomorrow!
Are you salivating yet? Can you almost smell the cinnamon? Are you singing the song from South Pacific? Oh my cats, this cake melts in your mouth. And the only thing you might not have on hand is buttermilk, and I'm thinking you could substitute something and get one of these babies popped out of the oven by morning!
1 c. chopped pecans (or walnuts)
4 t. cinnamon
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 yellow cake mix
3/4 c. oil
4 T. sugar
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. confectioners sugar
4 T. milk
1 T. vanilla
I know - 4 eggs! But that is what makes it melt in your mouth, so get busy mixing!
Mix pecans, cinnamon and brown sugar. Set aside. Mix together the remaining ingredients and pour 1/2 of the batter into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the pecan mixture over the batter, and top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle remaining pecan mixture on top.
Swirl the batter with a spoon. Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 50 minutes. Pour glaze over hot cake.
Yummy good stuff, I'm telling you!
