tea ring cake
this is one of my favorite cakes. my mom made it a lot growing up. she probably still does. :-) i've made it twice in the past month so i thought i'd share the recipe. it's really easy! honest. even if you aren't a baker ♥.
there is a secret ingredient ... instant vanilla pudding. makes the cake so moist.
if you like coffee cake try this one! oh, a bundt pan is required.
Tea Ring Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
Grease bundt pan. especially the cracks and creases.
Mix the above ingredients for a few minutes with the mixer.
In a seperate bowl mix:
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBS cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped nuts
(i've used pecans or walnuts. finely chopped)
Pour half of the cake mixture into the bundt pan.
Then sprinkle on half the sugar mixture.
Then the remaining cake mix, and remaining sugar mix on top.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Cool completely. Turn out onto cake plate. Enjoy!
so good with a big cup of hot coffee. or milk.
