What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 package (18 1/4 ounces) butter cake mix with pudding in the mix
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 4 large eggs

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 325 F.
  2. Generously grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt cake pan, covering all of the nooks and crannies. 
  3. In a small bowl, combine the chopped pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cocoa; set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl combine the cake mix, sour cream, and vegetable oil; beat until well blended. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour about one-third of the batter into the prepared Bundt cake pan. Top with half of the pecan and cinnamon mixture. Spoon another one-third of the batter over that layer — don't worry about covering the nut layer completely, it will spread during baking — and top with the remaining nut mixture. Spoon the remaining batter over the nut layer and spread very gently.
  1. Bake for about 1 hour, or until the cake bounces back when lightly touched with a finger. 
  2. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes.
  3. Carefully invert the cake onto the rack to cool completely before slicing.
