Hubs got home from work after I had made the cake and informed me he had to head out of town for a meeting in the morning. I told him had I known that I wouldn’t have made the cake. He enthusiastically said he’d take it on the plane with him to his meeting! “Nah,” I said. “It’s just a cake mix. I don’t want you to give that to them.” So Hubs isn’t here, and I tried that cake. I cut a slice, intending to just try a bite, but I ended up finishing it off. In other words, I needn’t have been concerned about it being good enough. He should have taken it to the meeting and everyone would have enjoyed it. I did have to put this cake together with things I had on hand or wanted to make use of. I used the butter pecan cake mix, but since I had no toffee bits I substituted miniature chocolate chips. I only had one banana, but a half cup of applesauce worked like a charm for that second banana. I used buttermilk rather than water and, in deference to Hubs’ sensitive innards, I omitted the pecans from the batter, sprinkling them on top of the cake instead. The cake is moist and flavorful - and incredibly, no cake mix taste! Since I had already introduced chocolate into the cake, I glazed it with “Satiny Chocolate Glaze,” also from this site. I am so pleased with this cake and have no doubt it would be perfect as is, without my modifications. My only criticism is with the baking time – I found it took closer to 50 minutes to bake thoroughly.

This was a delicious and mosit cake. The frosting makes the cake. I put pecan halves around the top of the cake. I did add a small amount more of the bananas, pecans and toffee baking bits. It freezes very well

Great flavor, but mine fell apart at the slightest touch. Not sure what happened.....could be my high altitude? Probably wont try again.

I made this in a bunt pan, I did put cream cheese frosting on it (my family loves that frosting) and added the sauteed pecans to this. Everyone loved it!
