Pecan Dump Cake

04-041

One of the recipes that I made for our Thanksgiving meal was a Pecan Dump Cake.  It was very good.  It reminded me very much of Paula Dean’s Ooey Gooey Butter Cake that I like so well.  Gooey in the middle and crunchy on the top.

Pecan Dump Cake

6 Tbsp. butter

1 cup pecans, chopped

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar

1 1/2 cups hot water

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Put butter, cut into chunks, into a 9×13 baking dish; put dish in hot oven to melt butter.

When butter is melted, remove from oven and sprinkle pecans over butter.

In a med size mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, milk and vanilla.  Stir gently, do not over mix.

Pour the flour batter over the butter and pecans.  Do not stir.

Sprinkle the brown sugar over the batter.  Do not stir.

Carefully pour the hot water over all.  Do not stir.

Bake at 350 degree for 35 minutes, until golden brown.

Let cool, and cut into squares.

Store covered.

If any of you lack wisdom,

let him ask of God,

that giveth to all men liberally.
