The perfect all occasion cake is my favorite cake- a sherry cake my mom made when I was a child. She got the recipe from a co-worker back in 1965 and it has been a crowd pleaser ever since. I am not much of a cake person or recipe swapper, but everyone seems to LOVE this cake so I feel compelled to share. The unique flavor and a very light lemony glaze is what make it so yummy. The lack of heavy frosting means it perfect for an anytime dessert, birthday cake or a little sweet with coffee & tea. So if you want to bring a dessert that everyone will enjoy try this recipe. FYI-you'll need an angel food cake pan.
- 1 package yellow cake mix
- 1 large package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup oil
- 3/4 cup cream sherry
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg -fresh ground if possible
- Mix these ingredients altogether and pour into well-greased angel food cake pan
- Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes. Let cool in pan inverted on cake rack for 5 minutes, then turn over and remove from pan.
- Mix lemon juice and powdered sugar into a spreadable consistency, poke top of cake with a toothpick then glaze with the lemony frosting.
- This cake freezes well or keeps wrapped in refrigerator for a week.
