When I received a beautiful bundt pan for Christmas, I couldn’t wait to try the most highly-rated bundt cake recipe on the web! Although the ingredients are few and simple, they come together to produce a very rich and delicious cake. It is best when paired with a Blueberry and Raspberry Sauce and a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream.
