BE PREPARED for this cake!
Its one of the easiest and most delicious cakes you can make- everyone loves it!
I have seen different variations of this cake floating around the net for awhile now- I HAD to try it!
I poked some holes in my cake before I poured the ‘topping’ over it
– so it would soak through and each bite would have the incredible flavor throughout!
I used pecans but you can definitely use walnuts or almonds if you would prefer! OR leave them out all together!
Original ‘do nothing cake’ is a bit more simple than MY version, but I thought it needed a mesh between ‘tornado cake’ and ‘do nothing cake’ – the result? FANTASTIC!
I saw tornado cake from my sweet blogger friend Martha, over at
a Family Feast (check out her amazing blog!) her version has fruit in it.
The ‘do nothing’ cake I saw on pinterest- this is my twist of the two!
