Oh man! I don't think I've ever had a cake come out of a pan so easily before! I used a Nordic Ware non-stick bundt pan, but I still believe the butter and sugar prep made the difference. Used a little less than the 1/4 c of sugar, just a light dusting to cling to the butter. I thought the 2 T of butter was a lot, but I don't dare change that now that I see how it came out. Holy mother of pearl, this cake is heavenly! I baked it for 80 minutes and it was a lovely golden brown. Maybe I didn't have as noticeable a sugar crust on the outside, but it was just fine to me. I put no glaze or powdered sugar on it -- good grief, 2 cups of sugar, 2 sticks of butter, 4 eggs -- it was evil enough as it was! :) I may even attempt to make muffins from this recipe, using the butter & sugar in the muffin cups. I bought some blueberries on sale ( $1.88 a pint!) and was looking for a recipe to use them in. I may have to go back and grab another pint! Once this cake comes out of the oven and cools off, it becomes an ENDANGERED SPECIES. As for those who made it but didn't get to eat much of it, try to make it when no one's home (or up yet) and CLAIM your piece. The baker of this creation deserves the first piece. Definitely a keeper, or couldn't you already tell? I can see why those who brought this to work or other gatherings got requests for the recipe. Saved in my favorites bar for future use! Thanks, dcbeck!
