Butter Pecan Bundt Cake (Marry Me Cake!)

"This was given to me by a relative. Not sure where they got this recipe. I just know the first time I made this and took it to work the guys in my office named it, The Marry Me Cake, because one bite and they wanted to take me home to Mother!! This is delicious. Enjoy it as much as we have."

    Cake was very good. Everyone enjoyed. It was very moist. I liked that it was different from the usual cake. However, it was a bit sweet for me. I did need to bake it 50 minutes.

    Incredible cake! I make it for a bake sale and was unable to take it because the top didn't come out of the pan pretty, however I wasn't disappointed as I got to keep this great cake! I know that I will make it again and again.

    5 stars for sure. Really excellent cake. Very easy to make. I just use some Mrs. Butter-Worth's from the cupboard and a container of Duncan Hines frosting. Drizzle a little cream cheese icing on top. Everyone loves it.Yummy! Have made this many times now and so has my sister

    Amazing cake! Never heard of a cake that includes frosting IN the cake, but it sure makes it moist! Very sweet so a small piece goes a long way. Thanks for sharing!


My husband and I have been married almost 32 years.? We spent 23 years in the Air Force, traveling all around the U.S. and Japan and Portugal.? At the moment we are living in Fairbanks, AK.? My husband is a Safety Officer with the pipeline and I work for the Army in the Army Substance Abuse Program.? I have learned to try and love many cuisines.? I do believe that traveling and sheer necessity has brought me to my love of cooking.? We've raised 3 boys and at the moment we have 2 of our sons and 3 grandchildren living with us.? They are so thankful that Grandma likes to cook.? I think baking is my most favorite thing to do, but trying new recipes out on my family at dinner is always fun.? We've had lots of great new recipes and a few not so great but it's always fun experimenting.? I love Recipezarr for this.? It's truly an experience.? I haven't put in too many recipes yet, I still work full time but will hopefully soon.
