This is a recipe for a cake that is loaded with lots of goodies in the middle of it that earn it the name of Snickers Cake. You will find caramels, loads of chocolate and pecans in the center of this yummy dessert cake. And although Snickers are made with peanuts, the addition of pecans will make a sweet and tender crunch to this cake. This dessert is also very sweet, so you may want to serve it with some whipped cream or ice cream just to cut the sweetness. Also, chilling the Snickers Cake will also make it taste less sweet.
This cake gets some help from a commercial cake mix that works to speed the baking process along, so this cake comes together more quickly. There is a bit of an unusual way to blend this cake, so read the recipe over before you begin so you know how this dessert comes together. It is not difficult to do, this cake is just a bit different from how cakes are generally baked. That is, this cake is baked in succession, which means that the layers are baked, then another layer is added and baked, and so on. It is a somewhat unusual way to bake a cake, but an approach that adds plenty of intrigue to this cake.
