Pecan Pie Cake

Does your family love Pecan Pie but one pie just isn't enough to feed everyone?  Then try this recipe.  My hubby's favorite pie is Pecan Pie and he likes this cake so much that he requests it when he needs to take a dessert to work when they have company lunches.


1st layer:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 (18.25 ounce) package butter pecan cake mix
2 tablespoons water
2 cups chopped pecans
2 eggs

2nd layer:

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup white sugar
1 cup corn syrup (light or dark)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Reserve 3/4 cup cake mix for second layer. Set aside.
For the first layer: In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup margarine or butter, brown sugar, cake mix (minus 3/4 cup), water, pecans and 2 eggs. Mix well.  Spread batter into pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.

For the second layer: In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 2 eggs, milk, sugar, corn syrup and reserved 3/4 cup cake mix. Mix well and pour over first layer.  Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. **

**After reading all the comments on the website where I got the recipe I added an extra 15 minutes to the cooking time until the cake pulled away from the sides of the pan.   
When I cut into my cake it looked like the cake on the website in that the bottom of the cake was sort of gooey. Hopefully my picture will give you an idea how your cake should look.
