Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake


Ok this is GOOD.  Kalissa just requested it for her birthday this year.  If it passed the 5-year old taste test, it is good!  Our birthday cakes has had to jump up several notches since being here in Colorado.  Carnan has made this for her kids birthdays in the past when we were invited over...so Kalissa wanted this cake for hers!  Can you say YUMMY!

1pkg yellow or white cake mix
1 pkg instant lemon pudding (small)
1 1/2 cups water
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 TBS poppy seeds

Mix everything together except eggs.  Add eggs 1 at a time.  Beat well after each addition.  Pour into a well greased & floured bundt cake pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes.  Remove.

BUTTER SAUCE FOR ON TOP: (this is very fattening but oh my, SO GOOD!)
3/4 cup butter
3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup half and half
3 tsp vanilla
3 tsp white karo syrup

Mix together and bring just to a boil.  May be made ahead and reheated.  Spoon mixture over cut cake slices at serving time.

or you could make a glaze to go on top:
2-4 cups powdered sugar
1-2 TBS lemon juice

Drizzle over cake while just warm
