Auntie Gales Recipes Dec. 9th edition
Red Velvet Praline Cake
This festive moist cake is perfect for a colorful Christmas dessert.

Preheat oven 325º

1/2 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar,
   packed
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chopped pecans
 
In a small sauce pan on low heat, mix together butter, brown sugar and heavy cream, stirring constantly just until butter is melted. Pour mixture into 2 (9-inch) round cake pans and then sprinkle with chopped pecans; set aside.

1 (18.25 oz.) box Betty
   Crocker German Chocolate
   cake mix
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 (1-ounce) bottle red food
   color
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
 
In a small bowl, mix together water, oil and food color; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs until blended and then add sour cream and beat until mixed together; add oil/water mixture beating just until barely mixed. Add cake mix and beat on medium speed about 1 minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Pour over pecan mixture and then bake about 35 minutes OR until tests done.
While the cake is still very warm, place a piece of waxed paper on top of the cake pan and then place a rack on top of the waxed paper; turn over to invert onto the waxed paper; allow cooling completely. (The waxed paper makes it easier to stack the layers when assembling.)


Topping:
1-3/4 cup heavy whipping
   cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
 
In a small mixing bowl on high speed, beat heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks. Frost both layer tops of the cake. Garnish with pecan halves if desired. Refrigerate.
