Vanilla Ring Cake

I found this Bundt (or ring) cake recipe in a 'Taste Of Home' recipe cards booklet (I must tell you, this is a pretty sweet cake and has a lot of vanilla; but it is a cake, after all!).

*This cake could probably just as easily be a lemon cake by substituting lemon extract for the vanilla.

**To make a substitute for the buttermilk, add a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk and let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes.

How to Make Vanilla Ring Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition; beat in vanilla.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk, beating well after each addition; pour into a greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan (I just used cooking spray).
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For the drizzle: Combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over cake.
