While shopping at Kroger (aka Fry's here in Arizona!), I picked up a few Martha White© Muffin Mixes. With it being fall and all, I wanted to experiment with the Apple Cider Muffin Mix.

By using Martha White© Muffin Mixes, I was able to get my recipe in the oven lickety-split ... and the flavor was spot on as to what I was hoping it would be!

Apple Cider Pecan Cookie Cake with Apple Cider Buttercream Frosting
by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients
    For the cookie cake:
    • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 2 pkg. (7 oz each) Martha White© Apple Cider Muffin Mix
    • ½ cup chopped pecans
    For the Apple Cider Buttercream Frosting:
    • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    • 3 cups powdered sugar
    • 3-4 tbsp. apple cider

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray, or line the bottom of the pan with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

    2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Add both packages of Martha White© Apple Cider Muffin Mix. Mix until dough comes together. Stir in the pecans.

    3. Spread the dough into the prepared pan, using your clean hands or a spatula to help press out and evenly fill the pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the cookie cake is cooked through.

    4. Remove cookie cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely in the pan.

    5. While the cookie cake is cooling, prepare the frosting by creaming the butter in a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until combined, stopping the machine and scraping down the sides of the bowl at least once, then continuing to mix until the frosting is light and fluffy.

    6. Carefully run a butter knife around the outside edge of the cookie and carefully remove it from the pan. Place on a serving plate. Decorate with Apple Cider Buttercream Frosting.

    Martha White also carries a Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mix - although I haven't found it at my local Kroger store recently, know that I am looking for it! I have another great idea that would use that yummy muffin mix!
