This recipe is a real crowd pleaser. It also freezes really well.
If I'm not having company I make three smaller 7" Bundt pans - filled just halfway and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Then eat one and freeze the other two for another time :-)

  10. Remove cake from the oven - let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes
