This is a recipe I got from a friend a long time ago. We make this delicious pound cake usually on Thanksgiving and christmas, everytime we make it there are no leftovers after the dinner, everyone loves it!
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cook: 1 hr 5 mins
Additional: 1 hrs 15 mins
- cooking spray (such as Pam®)
- 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1 (3 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup water
- ½ cup white wine
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar, or as needed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray and lightly coat with flour.
Whisk cake mix, pudding mix, 1/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Beat vegetable oil, water, 1/2 cup white wine, and eggs into flour mixture using an electric mixer until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool cake in a pan on a wire rack, about 1 hour.
Combine 1/2 cup white sugar, butter, 1/4 cup white wine together in a saucepan immediately after removing the cake from the oven. Cook sugar mixture, stirring constantly, over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon 1/2 the glaze over the cake while the cake is still warm.
Invert cooled cake onto a cake plate and spoon remaining glaze over top of cake. Allow the cake to absorb glaze, about 15 minutes. Dust cake with confectioners’ sugar.
