Spice Cake Recipe

Welcome to Blast From The Past Saturday.  Every Saturday I will be posting a previously published post, in order to take my weekends off.

I am making this spice cake to freeze.  I am not
sure yet whether I want this for Mother's Day,  or whether I want Homemade Key Lime Pie, or my favorite Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches.  This cake is great with strawberries piled in the center, served with ice cream and whipped cream.  This sounds like a surefire hit for something.  Just not sure what yet.  The great thing is that it freezes well.  So I can serve it anytime I want.
This recipe for Spice Cake is one of our family favorites.  We love this cake.  It is moist and great for this anytime of the year.  This recipe is also great with lemon cake mix and lemon pudding.  Okay so enough of that.  This cake is really easy to make, with only a few ingredients.

Spice Cake

1 box spice cake mix
1 16oz container sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 box vanilla pudding
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray a bundt pan with cooking spray.  Spray well because with cooking spray.  This is really important, because, if you forget like I did today, your cake will stick to the pan.  I can't even believe I did such a forgetful thing.  But then again, I can, because when I was taking all of the how to pictures I forgot to put my sd card back in my camera, so of course, no how to pictures.  I promise to do better next time. 

Pour cake mix and pudding into a mixing bowl and stir.  Add add water, oil, sour cream, and eggs to cake mix and beat with mixer until smooth. Pour the batter into bundt pan.

Bake for 55 minutes it should be done.  If not, check every 5 minutes with a tooth pick until it comes out clean. 

Let cool in pan for 15 minutes on a cake rack, and then turn onto cake rack and let cool.

Put on cake plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar  Serve

Serves 12 to 16 pieces

When I take it out of the freezer, I will take pictures of it all decorated.  I would love to hear from you.  I am open to any tips or recommendations that you may have.


 Take a look at this blog Happy Hour Projects - Happy Hour Fridays .  Look at her featured cake called You got Your Chocolate in my Peanut Butter.


  1. What a great idea to do an old post to have a Saturday off. I'm thinking that would be nice. Your spice cake looks lovely.

    1. Hi Shari,
      It is really helpful and it is a way of getting old posts seen. I didn't have many followers in the beginning.
      Thanks for stopping by.
