How many of you have ever made that Pillsbury recipe? The one that used the devils food cake mix baked in a caramel pecan sauce and topped with whipped cream… Yeah, that was good! And, I am not gonna lie, there is nothing like sugar to give it that chewy caramel topping. But this is the Chocolate Praline cake that we eat and love and while it is not quite chewy caramel, it taste fantastic without sluggish sugar crash afterwards so we are calling it a win!
Chocolate Praline Cake
¼ cup Truvia, (homemade or store bought)
½ tsp molasses
¼ cup butter
⅛ cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup chopped pecans
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, sweetener and molasses. Heat just until bubbly then pour in heavy whipping cream and remove from heat. Stir. Pour mixture into a round cake pan pan. Spread chopped pecans evenly over mixture and set aside.
¼ cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup almond milk or half & half
⅓ cup truvia
⅛ tsp pure stevia powder
Beat above ingredients together until well blended.
¼ cup almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup ground flax
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Mix in bowl to smooth out any lumps. Mix wet ingredients in with dry and blend. Allow to sit for a few minutes and then stir again. Gently spoon batter over pecans mixture in the pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 min or until inserted knife comes out clean. Allow to rest for 5 minutes and then invert cake onto a serving plate or tray.
½ cup heavy whipping cream
½ tsp vanilla
Whisk cream until thickened. Add sweetener and vanilla.
Spread onto cooled cake just before serving.
Garnish with additional pecans and chocolate shavings if desired.

This recipe makes one, 9 inch round cake. If you are serving a lot of people or would like a fancier presentation, double the recipe to make two 9 inch cakes and layer them on top of one another, being sure to add a layer of whipped cream to the middle. Also, my Candied Pecans make a lovely topping if you are really going for “WOW”.
