      I only changed a couple of things in the cake...instead of 3/4 cup vegetable oil I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil. I didn't use buttermilk, but used the old buttermilk substitute of 1 T vinegar to a cup of milk in both the cake and the glaze. I also put only 1 cup nuts (pecans), 1/2 c raisins, and threw in 1/2 c shredded coconut. Delicious!

      The only thing I changed was that I substituted the drained pineapple juice for part of the buttermilk. Delicious and moist, a wonderful texture. Topped with the recommended cream cheese frosting (another winner). Thanks, Kittencal! I'm having fun perusing your website. Goodness!!

      I did not make the cake (sounds really good) but I was looking for a different glaze and saw this one. DELICIOUS! I made a from scratch yellow butter bundt cake and wanted to do something different for a glaze or frosting other than chocolate. I tell you what, this glaze would be SUPER as an ice cream butterscotch topping! Love it! Next time I will try the cake with the glaze! Thank you very much :)
