Hi everyone

I made my first bundt cake a few days ago and encountered one problem....the bottom of my bundt cake (which actually was the top of the cake while it was in the oven) did not get that golden brown colour.

I used the 1234 recipe and was wondering if i used the wrong type of sugar (i used confectioners' sugar) or should i have used a "typical" pound cake recipe? 1 cup butter, 3 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, 6 eggs

My 1234 recipe is 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, 4 eggs....

Does anyone know ho to achieve the golden brown colour?

Mmmm that recipe looks yummy, I saved it in my 'Zaar cookbook!

I definitely think the problem was the icing sugar. I have to admit I have never heard of using icing sugar in a cake recipe! Glad your cake turned out for you.

yeah...i typically use icing sugar in all of my cakes.

years ago when i was a teen i didnt have an electric mixer so it was a PITA to cream the butter and granulated sugar by hand...that was when i switched to the icing sugar
