    4. 4
      Add milk and blend thoroughly.

    8. 8
      Add to batter all at once and beat for at least 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Batter will be very thick and creamy.
    10. 10

    11. 11
      Generously grease 10" inch bundt pan.

      I found this easy to make, but a little time consuming. Every minute spent was well worth the end results. The cake was heavy like a pound cake and very tasty. I used the handle of a wooden spoon to poke the holes in it for the butter sauce. I feel that the handle was to thick for the needed results. The Crochet needle like recomended would of been right. The next time I make this, I will add some cinnamon in the Butter Sauce. I believe that would really set the cake off. Thank you

      Wonderful! An enourmous cake, I upped the heat as ther required heat wasn't cooking it properly. The only thing I did different was doubled up on the glaze. I poured glaze over the base (I used a chopstick to create the holes) and let cool in the pan as per the recipe. Then I turned it out, and poked more holes over the top and poured more glaze over. It is necessary to have the glaze freshly made to por over the cake, as it goes crystally if left to cool. Will make this many more times. Thank you for a great recipe!!
