Buttermilk Breakfast Pound Cake

Buttermilk Breakfast Pound Cake

I made this for Sunday School this morning, and everyone seemed to like it. It's a Southern Living recipe that I tweaked a bit. Be sure to coat your Bundt pan well with cooking spray. Mine stuck a bit, but I globbed the glaze over the worst of it, and we ate it just the same! A bit of glaze or frosting can cover a multitude of mistakes! This cake would work great as a dessert, too!

 Cake ingredients:
1  tablespoon granulated sugar
1 box white cake mix
1  cup buttermilk
½  cup butter, melted
5  large eggs
¼ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ cup finely chopped pecans

Glaze ingredients:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 - 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Cake Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat Bundt pan well with cooking spray and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Using the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat cake mix, buttermilk and butter at medium speed until thoroughly blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans.
Spoon one-third of batter into prepared pan; sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly over batter. Top with remaining batter.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack. Cool 20 minutes and drizzle with glaze.

Glaze Directions:
Whisk together powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and one tablespoon of buttermilk until smooth, adding additional tablespoon of buttermilk, if needed. Drizzle over slightly warm cake.

  1. Oh, this looks like a lifesaver when you need something for Sunday School - thanks!
    I took PARSNIPS cake this week - I am participating in a Community Supported Agriculture where you get a box of veggies/fruit and you don't know what's going to be in it - and I've gotten parsnips the last THREE boxes :-D
    Basically just like a carrot cake...
