Cream Sherry Cake is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The first time I tasted this dessert was at a family dinner with my in-laws. I fell in love with this recipe and have used it for many years when I want to serve something memorable – yet incredibly easy to prepare. This is the only cake in the collection that uses pre-packaged mixes, but I decided to include it anyway because it is so wonderful.
If you prefer to make the cake from scratch, I am sure you could use the “Yellow Cake” recipe in the cookbook referenced below – a buy link is included.
- 1 yellow cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines™)
- 1 small vanilla instant pudding
- ¾ cup corn oil
- ¾ cup cream sherry
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup cream sherry (or substitute orange juice)
Have all ingredients at room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 350º F.
Have ready an ungreased 10” tube pan.
Beat eggs until fluffy – add other ingredients and beat for 10 minutes.
Pour into the ungreased pan.
Bake for approximately 50 minutes – until cake springs back when lightly touched.
Mix powdered sugar and sherry and pour over top of cake while it is hot.
Do not remove from pan until completely cool.
Serve with fresh lightly sweetened whipped cream.
