Upside Down Pecan Cake

Note:   We have so many friends who have had babies, surgeries and loss.  This is a good quick recipe that allows you to take something over to people who are needing help with food.   It works well as a breakfast cake or dessert.

Upside Down Pecan Cake.

3/4 c. butter, melted
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 c. pecan pieces
1/4 c. corn syrup
18-1/4 oz. pkg. yellow cake mix

Combine first 4 ingredients; divide and spread equally into 2 greased and floured 9"x5" loaf pans. Set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package directions using 2 tablespoons less water; divide and pour equally into loaf pans. Bake at 275 degrees for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center tests clean. Carefully invert pans immediately onto rimmed serving plates. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove pans. Slice and serve warm. Makes 16 servings.
