Submitted by: COCKBURNJ
Vanilla Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze


This is a Lee Bailey recipe. I used buttermilk which gives a very tender crumb. This is a Lee Bailey recipe. I used buttermilk which gives a very tender crumb.
Number of Servings: 24


    2 cups minus 2 tablespoons white flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    2 large eggs
    2/3 cup buttermilk
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    For the glaze:
    1 cup brown sugar
    3 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a nonstick bundt pan.
Cream the butter and sugar, beat in the eggs, then the vanilla and buttermilk. Stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon to keep the batter tender.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes, then test with a skewer.
Cool for 10 minutes, and turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
When cake is cool, glaze it.
Boil the brown sugar and water for 5 minutes, then put pot in cold water bath stirring all the while. When it thickens, pour it over the cake. If it gets to thick, put the pan back on the heat to liquify the glaze.
It will be really sticky on the teeth the first day, but put the cake in a cake saver and the next day the glaze will have softened and it will be delicious for several days thereafter.
