Preheat oven to 350

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl (or your stand mixer bowl), combine all the cake ingredients except for the chopped pecans. Also, add the tub of coconut pecan frosting. That goes into the cake batter too! Once it's all combined, stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Pour batter into greased baking dish. Bake for about 40 minutes or until gollden brown.
And if you insert a toothpick into the middle it should come out clean.

This cake is perfectly good just like this. It is moist and yummy. But it's even better with this butter sauce.

In a small pot over medium heat, melt 2 tbsp. butter. Pour in can of sweetened condensed milk with the melted butter and stir. Continue to stir until heated thoroughly, then add 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Stir again then take off heat.

Then spoon this yummy sauce over individual slices of cake.

I pour the sauce over the individual slices instead of just pouring it over the whole cake because I love to be able to scoop up some of the sauce off my plate as I eat it and I don't want the sauce to soak in and just become part of the cake.

But if you are feeding a crowd, it may be easier to pour the sauce over the entire cake before serving.

*Note: You can also make this in a bundt pan. Bake for about 50 minutes.
