If you've ever sampled Hornet's Nest Cake before, you know how amazing it tastes, but what you may not know is how simple it is to prepare. All it takes to whip up this yummy cake is five basic ingredients, including a box of cake mix, so you can imagine how fast this tasty dessert comes together! Although it has a funny sounding name, the flavors of this nutty, butterscotch-filled treat are nothing to joke about... they're seriously good and will make you rethink all of those other cake mix cake recipes you've tried in the past!

This dessert sounds like a good treat for this fall weekend. I love dessert recipes that start with a cake mix. They are easier to make and involve fewer ingredients. I love pecans and walnuts so I could see using either one. I don't know what this recipe has to do with hornets, but I am going to make it soon.

Having just dealt with an actual hornet's nest in our front yard, I'm not too excited to be looking at a cake with the same name. That said, this really looks like a delicious and easy-to-make treat. I'm wondering where it got its name. Are the chopped pecans and chips supposed to resemble hornets? Someone suggested adding some coconut to the recipe, and I think that would make a nice addition. I'm also wondering about using walnuts instead of pecans (no reason other than personal preference) and trying a cake with butterscotch pudding rather than the vanilla.
