  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Generously grease and lightly flour 12 mini fluted tube cake pans or 12 jumbo muffin cups (do not spray with cooking spray).
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Fold in pecans and 1/2 cup toffee bits. Divide batter evenly among mini pans.
  • 3
    Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and milk. Heat to rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Immediately beat in powdered sugar and vanilla with whisk until smooth. Immediately drizzle about 1 tablespoon glaze over each cake; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon toffee bits. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Almond lovers can get a fix by substituting almonds for the pecans and almond extract for the vanilla.
  • To keep the cakes from sticking to the cake pans, be sure to generously grease and flour the pans.
