What You'll Need

I love caramel, so this will be on my list to make for the holidays. This has to be good--look at all that butter, sugar, and eggs! I could see serving this late in the day on Thanksgiving with a pot of coffee. I might top it with Cool Whip instead of caramel.

Tasty. Mine came a bit dry. I will use cake flour next time and give serious attention to greasing the Bundt pan. Very flavorful.

FUN TO MAKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.... EVEN MORE FUN TO '' E A T '' !!!!!!!

Great recipe here is the shiny topping for the cake 1 stick butter or margarine 1 cup light brown sugar 1/4 cup milk 1/2 cup chopped nuts (if desired) Bring to boil and simmer 21/2 minutes ... Make this while cake is cooling or it will get hard pour on cake while cake is still a little warm

Thank you grannyblu for the glaze recipe. I like that shiny finish as opposed to the caramel sauce.

Have not tried this but certainly will!!

help! Love baking with 6 year old granddaughter. Just found out she is gluten intolerant. Need gluten free desserts.

I baked this bundt cake and it was yummy. Having said that, I had to adjust the ingredients. I had to add an extra 1/2 cup milk to thin the batter out for the mixer. I added drizzle icing on top and what a hit.

what "shinny" topping is on finished cake pic?

It says on the bottom of the recipe that you can drizzle caramel sauce over the cake. I'm assuming that is what the shiny stuff is.
