butter cake mix
Made this cake yesterday, and it is fabulous! Husband ate 2 huge servings! Only subs I made were toasted walnuts (heart healthy) instead of pecans and plain nonfat yogurt instead of fat and calorie laden sour cream. Cake was very moist, flavorful, and simply delicious! I will not feel guilty eating it with these healthy changes.
I thought this cake was dry and nothing to rave about. The glaze just soaked into the cake and it was cooling over two hours. I may try other recipes on this site.
I used all the other recommendations from the other reviews and this cake came out perfect! I made it for a family get together and now it is requested for every one.
I added slightly more sour cream;
little bit less baking time (40 min);
more filling and more layers of that filling;
swirl the filling with the batter at ea. layer;
almond extract in cake and glaze;
dust pan with cinnamon and sugar
This cake was delicious and very moist. I made extra cinnamon and brown sugar topping and layered the top of bundt cake with it. My husband ate almost the whole cake by himself.
This cake is sooo good. I made it just as the recipe said,except I put two layers of the cinnamon mixture. It's moist,tasty,rich,and satisfying. It doesn't even need the iceing. But, I made some because my husband needed it.I have made this one many times in the past few months. One hint for a great cake is don't use an off brand cake mix. It makes a big difference.
I used to make this cake in the 70's also and my parents and siblings loved to eat it any time of the day. It is very moist. You can be sure that I will be making it again for my family now that I have the recipe available. Thanks.
I loooove sock it to me cakes, my mom made them all the time when I was growing up. I was excited to make this one from scratch although my mom was dubious. It looked beautiful and all the taste components were there, it just wasn't "right." It seemed very dry and heavy. I used a silicone bundt pan and it was close to overdone at 55 minutes. I am making another tomorrow for a baby shower and this time I am going to add slightly more sour cream, 3/4 cup of vegetable oil and one cup of pecans to make a wider band of filling.
My mom used to make this on very special occassions only...a real treat for us kids! We loved it. A while back, I asked my Mom to dig through her old recipe boxes in the attic to find it but it had long since dissappeared. How happy I was to see the original recipe here! One vestige of my childhood found! THANK YOU!!!!
