How to cook Chocolate Praline Layer Cake
Heat oven to 325 degrees. In small heavy saucepan, combine butter, 1/4 cup whipping cream and brown sugar. Cook over low heat just until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Pour into 2 (8 or 9 inch) round cake pans; sprinkle evenly with chopped pecans. In large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs at low speed until moistened; beat at highest speed for 2 minutes. Carefully spoon batter over pecan mixture. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. In small bowl, beat 1 3/4 cups whipping cream until soft peaks form. Blend in powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. To assemble cake, place 1 layer on serving plate, praline side up; spread 1/2 of topping over first layer. Top with second layer, praline side up; spread with remaining whipping cream. Garnish with whole pecans and/or chocolate curls. Store in refrigerator. Serves up to 12. High altitude over 3,500 feet; add 2 tablespoons flour to dry cake mix. Increase water to 1 1/3 cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove immediately from pans.
