It is very close to the old fashioned pound cakes, but doesn't take as long. Stays moist for several days, if it's not eaten before then.
All ingredients should be at room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine cake mix, oil, sour cream and sugar. Add eggs one at a time until thoroughly mixed. Stir in vanilla. Spray (or grease) Bundt pan and sugar coat the inside of pan (this creates the crisp crust found on the old fashioned pound cakes). Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until cake test is done.
TIP: Instead of vanilla, experiment! I have used lemon or orange or raspberry. I'll try another flavor next time!
