We are true cake lovers in pour house. We love all kinds of cakes from the easy ones that start out with a cake mix and you doctor it up to make something delicious to something that is made totally from scratch like this cake. We always make our recipes easy even the ones made from scratch. Most of our cakes are one bowl cakes (if we can help it). We like to keep things simple and easy in all our cooking.
You will mix everything in one bowl and when your done pour it into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with pam cooking spray. We use pam cooking spray because we find it works just as well as buttering and flouring the bundt pan.
Your house will smell divine as this cake bakes. The batter itself smell amazing! Therefore you will have to keep from licking the spoon and the bowl!
This bundt cake is perfect for any occasion or celebration. It’s not really made for kids but adults will devour this cake if they are coffee lovers. So if you need something for your next gathering give this scrumptious cake a try. I bet you will be making it over and over again!
