Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a large bundt pan.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 7 – 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Cake Flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add eggs one-at-a-time to the butter mixture, scraping down the bowl after each addition then add the vanilla extract.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk and mix until smooth and creamy. Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan.
  5. Bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of the baking time, combine the glaze ingredients and heat to melt but do not boil.
  6. Immediately after removing the cake from the oven, poke several long holes into the top using a long skewer. Pour half of the warm glaze over the cake then let the cake cool completely in the bundt pan, about 2 hours.
  7. Once the cake has thoroughly cooled, loosen the edges from the pan and invert onto a serving platter. Rewarm the remaining glaze and pour or brush over the cake.

    This recipe was/is the bomb! Rich, sweet….amazing! Made my 3rd batch with browned butter in the glaze. Can’t go wrong with either glaze. Don’t insult anyone by attempting to make this one ‘healthy’. This is a sin you sign up for BEFORE you serve and eat.
