Wednesday, September 30, 2009 Gram's Best Brown Sugar Cake

I am not sure if I should be embarrassed about this or not. As much as I love to bake, I have never made a bundt cake. Maybe I was intimidated by the pan? Maybe I was too cheap to buy the pan??? For whatever reason I never in my life made a bundt cake.
Then comes along my fall issue of Food & Family from Kraft Foods. (side note: If you do not get this free quarterly magazine you are missing out. Go to and sign up for it. Great recipes, and did I mention it is FREE!)
I saw a recipe for Gram's Best Brown Sugar cake in this issue and it looked yummy! Still being too cheap to buy a bundt pan, I called my mom because I thought she had one. No luck! She hasn't seen hers in years. But as luck would have it my friend Jenni had the silicone pan from Pampered Chef on hand! She lent it to me and I bought the ingredients required. This cake was so easy to make! And I love this pan! I sprayed it with Bakers Joy and when I tipped it over the cake fell right out!!!! And the pan was very easy to clean as well! Beautiful!!!
Now the cheap streak has to end because I have to have this pan! I took the cake to work and everyone liked it. It is so tasty and sooooo moist!!! I highly suggest you try this. Just click here Kraft for the recipe, I promise you won't be disappointed.


  1. Hi there! So glad you came the name of your blog by the way. That looks like a yummy cake..I had not tried a bundt cake till this past year myself...did not even own a bundt pan...fell in love with a red one I found and now love it. Come visit again soon! cherry

  2. That does look good Tina ~ your lucky co-workers! I don't own a bundt pan either ~ I used to, and made some of those vanilla wafer cakes at Christmas (those were yummy, I'll have to try and find that recipe)...I do get the free Kraft magazine too and it is awesome ~ my step-daughter told me to sign up for it and I love it!

  3. I have that magazine and I am so making that cake now!

  4. wow! You have been busy. I haven't visited in a while and missed out on a lot. Love all of your creations. The only thing I ever used a bundt pan for was monkey bread and boy was that messy. Had to get rid of the bundt pan (I hate heavy duty cleaning). This recipe sounds yummy! I need to get crafting. Please visit me again and have a great weekend! :) Tammy
