Southern Bourbon Butter Pecan Sheet Cake is a simple cake recipe that is topped with an incredible homemade frosting. The cake itself is a boxed butter pecan cake mix, which is prepared according to the box instructions. The bourbon pecan frosting is what makes this a special dessert. Brown butter forms the base of this frosting, so it has a very rich and distinct flavor. Brown sugar, evaporated milk, bourbon, and sweetened condensed milk combine to create the frosting. After one bite of this cake, you'll never want to eat any other kind of frosting.

YUM. I think my dad would love this cake recipe. Butter pecan is such a great flavor, and you don't see it in too many cakes.
