How to Make Crack Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat together all of the cake ingredients.
  • Beat mixture until fully combined.
  • Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean and the edges of the cake have pulled away from the pan.
  • In a small saucepan, heat butter wine and sugar for the glaze. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat.
  • Use a bamboo skewer or toothpick to poke holes all over the cake bottom (still in the pan).
  • Pour glaze over the cake and allow it to soak up the glaze. This takes 15-20 minutes.
  • Once the glaze is absorbed into the cake, loosen the sides of the pan with a spatula as much as possible. Turn the cake out of the pan onto a cake plate.
  • Cut and serve cake.
