How To Make Chocolate Pecan Piecaken

To make Chocolate Pecan Piecaken you'll need the following ingredients:


  • One 15.25 ounce box chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box to prepare a cake
  • One 8" or 9" prepared whole pecan pie
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Pecan halves for garnishing cake


Preheat oven to 350° degrees F. Liberally greases a 9" or 10" springform pan with cooking spray. 

For easier removal, I also like adding a round of parchment paper to the bottom of the cake pan.

Prepare the cake batter according to box instructions. 

Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Remove any packaging from the pie and place it upside down into the cake batter in the pan. 

Pour the remaining cake batter over the pie.

Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist, but not wet, crumbs. 

I recommend checking at the 30-minute mark to see if it is browning too quickly; if so, tent loosely with foil. Cool the cake in the pan completely.

To make the ganache: heat up the heavy cream until warm to the touch in a small microwaveable bowl, about 40 seconds in the microwave. 

Pour the chocolate chips into the hot cream and let sit for 5 minutes. 

Stir until smooth and glossy, then pour the ganache over the cake. Garnish with pecan halves. ENJOY!!
