Kentucky Butter Cake

When I saw this recipe floating around Pinterest I just knew I had to make it. I cannot say I was always a big fan of bundt cakes because when you’re a kid you just kind of think of them as old people cakes. I mean a cake without frosting? I have came to appreciate bundt cakes and now even look at them as rather classy. The thing about a good bundt cake is that it’s so amazing you do not need all that frosting on top. Just a sprinkle of sugar and maybe some fresh fruit and there you have it.

This cake is so moist hence it being a butter cake after all. My husband says that Southerners are obsessed with butter and he’s right we are. My mom has a picture of me as kid sitting on the kitchen counter eating out of the Blue Bonnet tub. But hey I did not remember Arabs being that healthy did you?
