Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (510 g) Betty Crocker* SuperMoist* Butter Pecan Cake Mix
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can (14 oz/398 mL) apricot halves, drained and chopped (1 cup/250 mL)
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) apricot preserves
  • 1 tub (340 g) Betty Crocker* Whipped Cream Cheese or Fluffy White Frosting
  • 15 pecan halves or pieces, toasted

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F or 325°F for dark or non-stick pans. Lightly grease or spray with non-stick cooking spray, bottom and sides of 9x13-inch (23x33 cm) rectangular baking pan.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and apricots with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 37 to 43 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Spread preserves evenly over top of cake. Spread frosting over preserves. Garnish with pecan halves. Store loosely covered.
  • 5
    Spread frosting over top of cake, allowing it to flow down sides. Garnish with additional toasted chopped pecans if desired. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To toast the pecans, spread in a shallow ungreased pan; bake uncovered in a 350ºF oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • Tip 2
    Make it peachy by using canned peaches and peach preserves instead of apricots and apricot preserves.
  • Tip 3
    Stirring the preserves first will make it easier to spread them on the cake.
