This cake is beyond delicious and will be one of the most moist and flavorful cakes you ever try! Caramel, chocolate sand pecans combine for a perfect blend of flavors and textures. You will not be able to stop at just one slice!
Cake has become my new obsession… particularly bundt cakes.
Have you ever tried “Nothing Bundt Cake”? Well, if not, they are some of the most moist cakes you will EVER try. This cake base rivals that one and the best part is made right in your own kitchen!
The classic turtle flavors of caramel, chocolate and pecans come together beautifully in this extraordinary cake! It starts with a chocolate cake base that is AMAZING with little pops of pecans hidden throughout. It also has a caramel cream cheese frosting and is drizzled with additional caramel and chocolate and garnished with chopped pecans.
Each and every bite is sheer perfection!
Definitely give this a try! And good luck at stopping at just one piece ;)
