  • Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 65-70 minutes. The exact time will depend on the size and shape of your bundt pan so watch it closely. Don’t open the oven until you think it is done.
  • Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. 
  • Turn the cake onto a cake plate to cool completely.

TO MAKE THE GLAZE:

  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.
  • Store the cake in an airtight container.
