I thought I'd share this amazing childhood favorite with you and your loved ones. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have through the years.
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1- 3.4oz pkg instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp butter extract
1/4 lb butter
1/3 cup finely chopped nuts
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup finely chopped nuts
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tblsp milk
1/2 butter extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix cake mix, pudding mix, oil and water together. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat for 6 minutes then add vanilla extract & butter extract.
Prepare bundt pan by "greasing" pan with cube of butter then sprinkling with 1/3 cup of chopped nuts.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup chopped nuts, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon.
Alternate layers of cake mix and cinnamon nut mix, starting and ending with cake mix.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or when toothpick comes out clean.
Cool pan for 8 minutes then turn upside down in a plate (flat side down). When cool, pour glaze over the top of the cake.
In case you didn't grow up knowing what a bundt pan was, here's a picture of the pan that was made popular in America in the 1950's-60's.
