That Cake! (Aka) Brown Sugar Pudding Cake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Cookin In Texas

This Cake is so good. This is the one I talk about on my page. It is quite simple to make but has the texture closer to a bread pudding. The family just loves this and have requested it on many occasions Including a Double layer Bundt cake for a wedding. NOTE: In all my recipes I use (I can't believe it's not butter)spread and it works great and taste great.

OMG, try this cake, folks!! To die for good and very easy to make. I doubled the glaze, which is downright sinful, esp. if you are a caramel lover! (Well, I actually tripled the glaze, but didn't really want to own up to that fact. LOL) I think it's thicker than a true glaze; well at least mine was. It "hardens" up pretty quickly. Skipped the nuts. Easy way to save $$. Other than that, I followed recipe/directions as stated, including the freezer part. Mine was done after about 52 minutes, so I would check it no later than after 55 minutes. Did the toothpick test and it was completely done. So, so moist!! Made this yesterday and now wanted to make it again today (Christmas), but no pudding mix on hand....bummer. The first one was gone in a flash, it was that good.
