That Cake! (Aka) Brown Sugar Pudding Cake

"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.

    mine was a disaster, wanted to make for my christmas eve gathering, fortunately did the day before as i had to make another the next day. Followed all directions as written, have a mini bundt pan which holds a box cake mix quite well. alot of batter so i put some into loaf pan. about 40 min in i smelled burning and found both bundt and loaf were errupting like volcano's, my oven was a disaster. took the loaf pan out as it was near empty, left the bundt for another 10 min when i found it was sunken down to an inch or so in the bottom of the pan. so sad!!! the cake that was there was tasty but in the garbage quickly. Don't know what happened but afraid i won't try again.

    Thanks for the Yummy recipe! It was very moist and had a good texture. Next time I make it, my husband told me to add more cinnamon and/or add apples to it. I love Bundt cakes and it is not always easy to find good ones :)

    One of the best cakes EVER!


I am a housewife, I love to cook and experiment with different spices and flavors, there are not many recipe ideas I will not try. EXCEPT! anything that is extremely HOT and SPICY, I have a allot of family members living here and most of us spend the holidays together.We all Love to eat and look forward to the different AND the traditional recipes on the Holidays. My pet peeve...HUM it makes me crazy when someone cooks and leaves the mess pile up, It's easier to clean as you go, that way when the food is done you can actually sit down and enjoy it. I am very passionate about and being apart of the fight to prevent animal cruelty, and helping to educate people about what happens to Children or Pets left in vehicles on very hot or very cold days, also Pets left in extreme elements outside without the proper necessities. I believe that anyone that purposely harms or torturers a child or a animal is a Coward!
