It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch and coffee group. It’s my go-to recipe if I’m having someone stop by for a morning visit, and if my boys go to someone’s house for a weekend, I send one along with them. People go nuts for this cake, and it’s SO quick and easy to make, you won’t even need to look at the recipe after you’ve made it a couple of times. Now, it’s not the most gorgeous cake you’ll ever see, but wait until you taste it!
- 1 pkg cake mix (I like to use yellow or “golden”)
- 1 instant vanilla pudding mix (the powdered kind – my box reads “4 servings”, 102 g)
- 1 cup oil (I use veg. or canola)
- 1 cup water
- 4 eggs
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 3 tsp cinnamon
What you’ll do:
In large bowl, mix (electric beaters) cake mix, pudding mix, oil and water until combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating at med-hi speed, for one minute after each addition (whatever…I’m all for keeping it simple, so I crack all the eggs in at once and beat it for 4 mins on med-hi).
Pour half of batter into greased/floured bundt pan (I just spray with PAM…again, all about keeping it simple). Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle half the mixture over the batter. Pour remaining batter into pan, and top with remaining cinn/sugar. Swirl through with a knife.
Bake 350 for 55-60 minutes (or until knife comes out clean)
Seriously! How easy was that?
And it’s versatile!
You can use any flavour of cake/pudding mix you like. I’ve used lemon cake with lemon pudding, and poured and dusted it with icing sugar. I’ve also used chocolate cake/pudding and poured an icing sugar glaze over. Anything goes really. Have fun with it!
