Laura's notes for this recipe:
Oh so good, If you prefer your cake with more sauce, just make a double batch. It is heavenly

Ok, Laura's clearly knows the way to my heart: Kentucky, butter AND cake all in one recipe?! Woohoo... This sure is a treat and makes for such a splendid presentation! With just a slightly sweet flavor there's no fear of being sent into a sugar coma and it's pretty close to perfection served alongside a steaming cup of coffee. Mmmmm...

1
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour bundt pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, set aside.
2
