Pecan upside-down cake is so easy and delicious.

Pecan Upside-Down Cake

My family loves anything with pecans and they especially love pecans with brown sugar on a cake.  This cake takes no time to throw together.  You don’t even need a mixer.  Make it when you need a quick dessert for family and friends.  You could even double the cake recipe and make it into a two layer cake.  It keeps well in a cool place for several days and seems to get better with age.  Serve with ice cream or whipped cream on top for a real treat.

This pecan upside-down cake is one of our favorites.

Topping:

4 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup pecan pieces

Ingredients for Cake:

1 1/3 cups baking mix (Bisquick, Jiffy Baking Mix or make your baking mix with our recipe)

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt butter in oven in a 9 inch round cake pan.  Stir brown sugar into melted butter in pan.  Arrange pecans over butter and brown sugar.  Whisk together the baking mix and white sugar in a mixing bowl.  Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract.  Stir well with a spoon.  Spread over the pecans.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until center tests done when stuck with a fork or toothpick.  Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes to cool before taking out of pan.  Makes 1 nine inch round cake.  Enjoy!
