LOVE the l ingredients of this cake and want to make it. I noticed the recipe calls for 2 cups of pecans but I only saw where you add one cup of the pecans. Please advise.<br/>Sherry in Knoxvillle TN

LOVE this. I made this for my hubby's 31st birthday since he loves any kind of turtle dessert. I used Betty Crocker's Gluten Free Devil Food Cake, which is half the size of regular cake mix, so I halved the recipe.
