I baked this cake for my neighbors as a "thank you" for helping me out. (They are awesome people!) Hopefully, they will be kind enough to say whether it was any good. :)
1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil's food or butter recipe chocolate cake mix
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or softened butter
1 container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted if desired
- Heat oven to 350°F (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom and sides of 15x10x1-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
- In large bowl, beat cake mix, sour cream, water, cocoa, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool about 45 minutes.
- Remove lid and foil cover from frosting. Microwave frosting in container on High 20 to 30 seconds, stirring once, until pourable. Spread frosting over cake; sprinkle with pecans.
PS: The pan is from the Dollar Store. You can get three aluminum foil 13x9 pans for a $1 which is great because you never have to worry about getting the pan back....
