Pecan Pie Dump Cobbler

Just made this for the family reunion and if you like Pecan Pie, you just might like this.

 

Pecan Pie Dump Cobbler Base

        2 eggs, slightly beaten

        1/2 cup packed brown sugar 

        1 jar (12.25 oz) Smucker's™ caramel topping

        1/4 cup butter, melted

        3 cups pecan halves

 

Topping

        1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ white cake mix

        3/4 cup butter, melted

        Vanilla ice cream, if desired

Steps

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  •  In large bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, caramel topping and 1/4 cup melted butter with whisk until well blended.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Pour mixture into pan; spread evenly over bottom of pan.
  • Sprinkle top with dry cake mix; gently shake pan to distribute evenly.
  • Pour 3/4 cup melted butter over top, tilting pan to cover as much of top with butter as possible.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until top is light golden brown, mostly dry on top and bubbling around edges.
  • Cool 20 minutes before serving.
  • Use large spoon for serving.
  • Top individual servings with ice cream, if desired.
  • Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

I inserted a knife and when it came out clean, I then took it out of the oven, much like when you bake a pecan pie.  I have a convection oven and baked it for 30-32 minutes, but of course ovens vary.

Re: Pecan Pie Dump Cobbler

Now that I have tried this, Havarti, I think I would use a cake mix with a little more flavor---maybe the butter pecan or yellow, and I wouldn't use the whole box of cake mix.  I would sprinkle it on until the bottom layer is covered with a thin layer of the cake mix.  That way it isn't quite as thick and doesn't take the flavor away from pecan layer.  And, not quite as sweet.  I brought home only a couple of pieces, so it went over well.

How about German Chocolate?  

 

Edited to add:  To continue with the German Chocolate cake theme, add coconut to the base.  Or, if you added chocolate chips to the base, it could become more of a Turtle version, i.e., pecans, chocolate, caramel.

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

Re: Pecan Pie Dump Cobbler

Dusty Rose, I suppose you could try Bisquick, but I've never used Bisquick in that way, so I'm not sure how it would turn out.

 

IamMrsG:  What yummy ideas.  I will have to make notes of your suggestions on my recipe and try them next time.

 

Love pecan pie?  The lower layer is just like excellent pie filling.
