Somewhat lighter in texture than pound cake, yet not as light as chiffon cake, Gem cake is a jewel of a cake. Alone, it literally melts in your mouth. It can be paired with any number of fillings -- like lemon curd, whipped cream, or chocolate frosting -- to make it even more fabulous.
1 (18.5-ounce) package butter recipe golden cake mix
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
- Do not preheat oven. Spray a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, sugar, sifted flour, sour cream, and oil. Add the eggs and mix on low speed for 1 minute. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and beat for 4 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Set the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C) and bake for 50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan.
