Updated July 21, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ butter pecan cake mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can (15.25 oz) apricot halves, drained, chopped (slightly less than 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped whipped cream frosting
  • 15 pecan halves or pieces

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease or spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and apricots with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 2
    Bake 33 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 3
    Spread preserves evenly over top of cake. Spread frosting over preserves. Garnish with pecan halves. Store loosely covered.

  • Make it peachy by using canned peaches and peach preserves instead of apricots and apricot preserves.
  • Stirring the preserves first will make it easier to spread them on the cake.
