ITALIAN CREME BUNDT CAKE – Make this dessert for your holiday dessert table!

I’ve long had a great appreciation for Bundt cakes. They’re simple to make yet pretty enough to serve guests. And with my poor frosting skills, I love simply topping them with a glaze. That’s exactly the case with this beauty. This fantastic cake is jam-packed with plenty of coconut and pecans, and topped with a simple cream cheese glaze.

  • 2 c sugar
  • 1 stick butter
