  • 1 box butter cake mix
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 c. milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 3.4 ounce box instant vanilla pudding mix

Butter Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray with flour.
  • Use a hand mixer to beat the cake mix, butter, eggs, milk, and pudding mix for a few minutes or until thickened. Pour into pan.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs. Remove the cake from the oven and cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Poke holes all over cake.
  • Make Butter Sauce: In a saucepan combine the remaining sugar, butter, vanilla, and the water. Cook over medium heat, until fully melted and combined. Do not boil. 
  • Pour sauce all over cake and allow to cool completely before removing from pan. Garnish slices with sauce of your choice and berries. Say Grace and enjoy!
