Fall Into Flavor, Week 2

I love a bonfire in the Fall.

Does Fall spark a bonfire in your heart, fueling longings for favorite comfort foods that you've known and loved for years? Can we know and love those favorites of yours, too?

If so, please join us for Fall Into Flavor. All we ask is that your contribution is a hearty, much-loved dish. No healthy requirements, no particularly exotic ingredients, but probably lots of starch, sugar and ... our friend, Mrs. Lovey Butter.

In case you've forgotten, this is butter.

Hello, goodness of life.

This is not butter. This is a rutabaga.

Hello, root vegetable which could never qualify for this meme. They are not interchangeable. Got it? OK. You may proceed to tantalize our taste buds. My contribution is below.

Butter Pecan Cake

*Warning: This cake is incredibly moist and addictive because the frosting is IN, not ON, the cake. "Nuh-uh, Get out!" I'm serious! It is!

1 Butter pecan cake mix
4 Eggs
1 c. milk
3/4 c. oil
1 can coconut/pecan frosting

Oven 350*. Grease bundt pan well. Mix cake mix, eggs oil & milk for 2 mins. By hand, stir in the can of frosting. Pour, bake for 45-55 mins. Toothpick test, if you wish; but remember, this is a very moist cake. Cool 10 mins. in pan, then remove.

"Nuh-uh" You always crack me up. Love it!

Emailed you yesterday, just to let you know I got the mug!! Ken Lee the Ken Lee Mug.

I'm not much of a cook, so haven't participated in this particular meme, but know I'm reading and learning.

We're still pretending it's fall but we're supposed to get a cool front later in the week. I can't wait to try some of the recipes. I am just a pretend cook. Or a wannabe. We eat out way too much!
Thanks, Linda. The cake makes my mouth water and it's not even 8 o'clock! Love, A

Susanne said...

Well you could drown the rutabaga in said butter and then it would qualify, right?

Hey I just bought that cake mix, so I'll have to give this a try as soon as we eat our way through the three Thanksgiving pies and pumpkin cheesecake bars that we had for Thanksgiving yesterday.

Greg C said...

I know I have an old recipe around here someplace. I just have to put my finger on it.

Susan said...

This sounds good. I'm wondering if you can change frosting flavors? Have you ever tried.

I keep pretending it's fall, but it's HOT here.

sounds like it will be a hit in my house!

Jules from "The Roost" said...

OH my, oh my! I am so wanting this cake...thanks for the awesome recipe!

Kim said...

Oh dear....I'm going to gain back all I've lost just from reading today!! UGH! :) YUM! I've linked to some buttery goodness! Check it out! :)


Cheryl said...

This cake sounds soooo good!

Mocha with Linda said...

Well, hmmmpf. My comment didn't go through. Now I see that it doesn't let us do tags with del to cross through stuff on comments. Googly-moogly. :-) I'll have to just say my arteries were hardening just reading it. And not put (with a cross-out) that the arteries were constipating!

It sounds delish!

Robin Lambright said...

Sound too yummy! Love those simple easy ones. The hubby love coconut, possibly a new holiday fav.

Ballerina Girl said...

OK, so...tell me, how does one get Butter Pecan Cake Mix when one (namely ME, BG) does not have that accessible?
Is there a recipe like this that comes with a recipe for that mix?
hahaha, well, I will definitely be bringing that mix back at Christmas time when I do my shopping! This sounds incredible!
Thanks, check out mine soon!

Becky said...

When my mom gets home I'll have to ask her for her recipe for The World's Best Cake Ever! or something like that. It involves putting pecan icing in the batter I think. Until then I will drool over all these loverly recipes you got here. I do make some killer cream puffs... you don't even want to know how much fat and calories is in even one :-0 talk about scary.

If you get a chance come by my blog and help me celebrate my 100th post :-)

Thanks for this great idea! I can't wait to visit everyone's recipes. Guess it's a good thing fall is a great time for walking, cause we're all gonna need to walk a lot off!

DidiLyn said...

Butter? Pecan? Cake?
I love each of those words seperately, but together they really sing their siren song to me. (yes, I said SIREN SONG.It just seemed to work at the moment.)
Love ya!

Edie said...

I'm going to get fat reading these receipies! :) Being single I don't cook much but I'll try to come up with something for next week. I may have to take up cooking just to try these scrumptous foods!

The Patterson 5 said...

OK! We've gone to the store and my little girl and I are making this cake for Wed night! We can't wait! I will let you know how it goes! You can ask CK sometimes my cooking doesn't always come out right! She and her family shared a nice homeade icecream soup once!

Nadine said...

Sounds yummy and simple to make - two of my favorite things when trying new recipes.

annie said...

The cake sounds delish!

RissaRoo said...

Yummy! OK, it's not Monday and I'm not sure I can figure out how this linky thing works, but I'd love to join! Great idea.

1 (12 pound) whole turkey
6 tablespoons butter, divided
4 cups warm water
3 tablespoons chicken bouillon
2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons seasoning salt

Add a Personal Note

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Rinse and wash turkey. Discard the giblets, or add to pan if they are anyone's favorites.
Place turkey in a Dutch oven or roasting pan. Separate the skin over the breast to make little pockets. Put 3 tablespoons of the butter on both sides between the skin and breast meat. This makes for very juicy breast meat.
In a medium bowl, combine the water with the bouillon. Sprinkle in the parsley and minced onion. Pour over the top of the turkey. Sprinkle seasoning salt over the turkey.
Cover with foil, and bake in the preheated oven 3 1/2 to 4 hours, until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). For the last 45 minutes or so, remove the foil so the turkey will brown nicely
