Back in the 70's it was all the rage to make a bundt cake to take to church suppers, backyard get-togethers, card parties or family reunions. Then, like many things...they sort of gave way to whatever the next fad was. Today, however, they are kind of making a come back; well, in my circle of friends, anyhow. This cake is so flavorful and don't even need a glaze or frosting, but since the batter stained page I tore out of a Family Circle magazine forty years ago has a recipe for a glaze, I'll include it. Hope you enjoy as much as so many of my friends and family have.
