Enjoy a real Southern Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce recipe, and create a classic deep South dish that is its own reward. This Southern Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce recipe is super easy because it uses almost entirely commercial ingredients for the main parts of the recipe. So a pecan cake mix helps you out with the cake itself. Then the butter sauce is made, once again using sweetened condensed milk to make this an easy and quick sauce to make up.

Together, these commercial ingredients make this Southern Pecan Praline Cake with Butter Sauce recipe a quick and easy dessert to make. And this cake is likely even better served warm, so you can literally make it, bake it, and serve it. Add some ice cream on the side if you are serving it up when it is quite warm. Pecans and butter are two classic ingredients that you find in plenty of Southern cooking. Brown sugar is another great ingredient that works well in plenty of these rich Southern recipes. Pecans are a wonderful Southern nut. They are somewhat more tender than lots of other nuts, and do not have the hard crunch of, say, almonds, but are much softer. They are also a rather sweet nut, and that means they complement and underscore sweet desserts quite nicely. They also take on the flavors of butter and brown sugar, two mainstays of deep Southern cooking, wonderfully well. So it is no surprise to find pecans as the nut of choice for this recipe.

Nuts are also a terrific food that you should eat often. They are loaded with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, include potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and other great components that support a health eating plan. People who eat nuts and seeds regularly generally tend to eat more important vitamins and minerals than the general population. So if nuts and seeds have not been part of your family’s daily eating plan, consider putting out nuts (in the shell is best, and unsalted, if possible) right on the kitchen table where any one can grab a nut when they want a quick snack. You almost could not feed your family a better snack food.

This is a quick and easy cake that leans heavily on commercial ingredients to make this a simple dessert to make when you either do not have the time or perhaps do not have the energy to put together something that you might make from scratch. Plenty of other ingredients get added to the mix that will give it big homemade flavor, as well as a lovely sauce that will make it taste great. Make it soon with the kids.
