Let Them Eat Cake

To cure my boredom last Friday I made a cinnamon coffee bundt cake. Needless to say, it was well received. If you know my family at all, you know we picked at it for a few days and then all wondered... "who ate all the cake?"
I wanted to share this recipe to inspire your next girl's day treat. Add some fresh fruit, a delicious coffee drink, head out to the deck on a beautiful summer day and voila...

Cinnamon Coffee Bundt Cake
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 instant vanilla pudding mix (small)
4 eggs
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water
1 tsp. butter flavoring (extract)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl. Beat at high speed for 8 minutes. Make filling while beating.

1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Grease bundt pan. Alternate layers of cake batter and cinnamon mixture, ending with batter on top (3 layers batter, 2 layers sugar). Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Remove, leave in pan for 8 minutes to cool.

1 c. powdered sugar
3 tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. butter extract

Pour glaze over cake when it's slightly warm.
*I had to add more powdered sugar to make my glaze thicker. If it's running right off the cake, then you need more sugar.
