"Every year my boyfriend and I bake for all our friends and family a whole selection of goodies. The ones with alcohol in them seem to be the favorites :) I wonder why?"

Ready In:




  • Mix all ingredients except the powdered sugar on medium speed for 5 minutes.
  • optional Sometimes I add walnuts to the mix as well as put some in the bottom of the bundt pan before pouring in the cake mixture it gives it a nice crunchy topping.
  • Pour into well greased bundt pan and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
  • Let cool for 15-20 mins before removing from bundt pan.
  • While cooling I sometimes mix some of the (1/4 cup) powdered sugar and some extra sherry (1/2 cup) poke holes in cake with a chopstick and drizzle while still in pan.
  • Turn out pan onto cooling rack and dust lightly with powdered sugar.

    118oz yellow cake mix? That's over 7lbs.!


    I've made this at least 5 times and I can't believe I forgot to rate it! I picked this recipe because 3/4 bottle of Sherry from a previous chicken recipe. Boy was I happy that I did. Everyone loves this. The first time I made it exactly as written. But my personal preference has me to omit the nutmeg. Comes out real moist and not too sweet.

    As I was mixing this the sherry smelled so good! This is a very easy cake to make. I had to bake it 10 minutes longer as toothpick did not come out clean at 45 minutes. I also used Bakers Joy to spray the inside of my fancy pan. It came out really nice, check out the photo. I adopted this chef for the *Spring PAC 2008* game

    I am always on the lookout for great ways to make boxed mixes taste more like homemade. DH has a sweet tooth that requires that there always be a cake in the cake plate. This recipe is just the ticket. Thanks for the great recipe.


I am an Aussie and moved to Southern California in 1991. I have a very sarcastic sense of humour and my talents lie in being intuitive, singing, and eating. I have traveled all over the world and have lived in many locations. I spent the most time in Melbourne Australia ), Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Southern California, New York and Harrisburg PA. If you were to ask me what I love &/or miss about each place my first choice would ALWAYS be the food. My hobbies are acquiring lots of environmental, and medical allergies. <---- Joking but I am super sensitive and so I can be a big pain in the bum to cook for. I guess that is why I love to cook. I know exactly what is going into my mouth and not have to worry about keeping my epipen or inhaler in close reach.
