Mr. Food recipe

What You’ll Need

  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 7 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Confectioners’ sugar for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Coat a 10-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray, then lightly dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add half the sifted flour, the heavy cream, vanilla, and remaining flour; beat until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Place pan in cold oven and turn oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 70 to 75 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. When ready to serve, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.


  • To take this over the top, we drizzle it with a whipped cream glaze we make by mixing together 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until smooth.
