  • 1 ½ cups butter softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs large
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 TBSP cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Vanilla Glaze

  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar divided
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 TBSP hot water


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the vanilla and eggs. Mix again with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt.
  • Alternate adding the flour mixture and the milk to the butter mixture. 
  • Generously grease a 10-12 cup bundt pan and dust lightly with 1 TBSP flour. (Or you can use Non-Stick baking spray!)
  • Add the batter to the pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes.
  • Invert onto a rack and cool completely. Dust entire cake with 1/2 cup powdered sugar, using a dry pastry brush to cover cake completely.
  • Make the glaze by whisking the powdered sugar and vanilla extract together. Add water 1 teaspoon at a time until the glaze is a drizzling consistency. Drizzle on top of cake.
  • Let icing set, then serve & enjoy!
