Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 2¾ cups sugar
  • ¾ cup salted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup shortening
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup sour cream

For the Glaze:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups – 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 Tbsp milk (more or less to reach desired consistency)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

For the cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Cream together the sugar, butter and shortening until smooth then beat in vanilla.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, until fluffy.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt).
  5. Add this flour mixture and the evaporated milk to the original mixture alternately. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed, then fold in the sour cream.
  6. Pour the batter into a prepared bundt pan.
  7. Bake at 325°F until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean – approximately 55-60 minutes.
  8. Flip onto a cooling rack and allow it to cool for at least 1 hour.

For the glaze:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, on medium speed, blend together the cream cheese and butter until well combine and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add in 1 1/2 cups of sugar and vanilla; mix about 1 minute until well combine.
  3. Add the milk and possibly more sugar – until you get a consistency you like. I prefer the glaze pretty thick and creamy.
  4. Pour/drizzle over the finished cake and enjoy!
