Simple Embellishment to a Betty Crocker Standard

I prefer to bake cake from scratch. But that doesn't mean I always do. Sometimes a box cake is good, too. A few weeks ago, I was in the grocery store line and the person in front of me didn't get all of their groceries. They left their Betty Crocker Pound Cake behind and the checker put it in with my groceries. I didn't realize it until I got home. So, I put it away to use on a day when I wanted to fix a quick and easy dessert. If any of you try to tell me that you would have returned it to the store, I will not believe it. So don't even try. Do gooders.

I followed the directions on the package and added 6 oz of chocolate mini morsels and about 1 cup of pecans. I baked it in my removable bottom flower pan for about 25 minutes.
It was sooooo good, especially warm.

Heartfelt thanks to the lady in front of me at the grocery store for the unintentional contribution she made to my family and to my blog.

How funny! I would have kept it too ... and I agree, that sometimes a boxed cake is just the thing. Love the addition of the chocolate chips and pecans too. Looks yummy!
