Years ago, Sister Hulene brought a mouth-watering pound cake to a church fellowship. I could not believe it when she said the secret was using pecan frosting in the mix!
Let me tell you, this is the simplest and most delicious pound cake. The pecans and coconut from the frosting make it taste like it took a lot more work than emptying a frosting container. It’s even better the second day–if it lasts that long.
Pecan-Coconut Pound Cake
1 box butter pecan or yellow cake mix
1 can coconut pecan icing
3/4 cup oil
1 cup water
Mix all ingredients together with mixer. Grease tube or bundt pan and dust with 1/3 cup powdered sugar. Pour batter into pan and bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Cook cake in pan for 10 minutes.
Hulene shares in the church cookbook two great options for frosting are either cream cheese or an additional can of coconut pecan icing. Personally, Hulene is like me and prefers the cake as is with no icing since it is so moist.
