The Nap Cake

The Nap Cake

Your girl was NOT planning to post anything today! But, you know how I get when I’m bored. And I couldn’t let that extra Bourbon sauce from the bread pudding go to waste! So, what did I do? I made the easiest and most moist Vanilla Bundt cake! Then I literally drowned that baby in Bourbon sauce.

Wondering why I’m calling this the “Nap Cake”? Make this and see. Let me know what you think whenever you wake up.

I posted it on social media and you guys demanded the recipe. Like the nerve of me to post something and not include the recipe! Forgive me, Cookies. I got my mind right quickly! Enjoy!!

1 hr
  1. 1 stick unsalted butter (softened)
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 2 eggs (room temp)
  4. 2 cups cake flour
  5. 1 T baking powder
  6. 3/4 cup whole milk (room temp)
  7. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  8. pinch of salt
Bourbon Sauce
  1. 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  2. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  3. 3 T unsalted butter
  4. 1 cup heavy cream
  5. 1 T cornstarch
  6. 1/2 cup bourbon or more it's you're boozy
  7. 1 T pure vanilla extract
  1. In a bowl, whisk the sugar and cornstarch together well
  2. Next, melt the butter in a saucepan then add in the sugar and cornstarch mixture
  3. Whisk in the remaining ingredients
  4. Bring to a boil for 1 min then turn of the heat
  5. Continue to stir
  6. Sauce will thicken as it cools
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Grease a bundt pan well. I use Baker's Joy. (Makers of Baker's Joy, if you're reading this, RUN ME MY CHECK!)
  3. Okay, now, using an electric mixer, cream the butter, and sugar together in a bowl.
  4. Add in the eggs and blend until creamy. Blend it for 2 mins straight. Foreal! Don't blend for 30 secs and quit cause I'll know!
  5. Now, alternate between adding in the flour/baking powder/salt mixture with the milk.Start with the dry mix and end with the dry mix. I know some of you are confused as hell at this point. Just ask me to break it down further in the comments.
  6. Pour in the extract and give it one last, good mix.
  7. Pour it all into the pan and bake for 30-40 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Let it cool for about 10 mins.
  9. Then, using a pairing knife (Or butter knife. Don't make this complicated, okay?) make 8 small slits around the cake.
  10. Take 1/2 cup of the sauce and pour it over the cake
  11. Once all of the sauce is absorbed into the cake, take a plate, put it over the cake, pray to the Good Lord that it doesn't stick, and flip it. ( How many times am I gonna type the word "cake"?)
  12. Admire your work and thank God it didn't stick.
  13. Now, drizzle the remaining sauce over the cake, and prepare to take a good nap.
  14. Enjoy!
