This recipe is from the book Friendship Cake by Lynne Hinton, a writer friend of mine. I highly recommend this story about four friends in a Southern town. Beautiful story! You'll love this cake! Just one more thing . . . in order to be really honest, I wrote to Lynne, asking permission to use her recipe. This is what she wrote back to me: "Please, please, please use the recipe. I am honored." She's such a nice lady and an excellent writer!

How to Make Lucy's Friendship Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place all cake ingredients in mixing bowl. Mix on slow speed for 1 minute, then on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour into a well-greased and floured tube pan (I use a Bundt pan). I've never used baking spray with flour, but I imagine it would work just fine.
  • 2Bake at 325 for 1 hour. I suggest checking for doneness with a toothpick by about 50 minutes. I've discovered that in our high altitude (6400 feet), 50 minutes is just about right.
  • 3Boil dressing ingredients 2 to 3 minutes. Poke holes in cake with a toothpick, and pour hot dressing over hot cake while it's still in the pan. Let cake cool completely in pan.
  • 4This friendship cake is so easy to make . . . very moist. Most friendship cakes call for starter that has to be kept alive, but not this one. I think you'll really enjoy it.
