Let me tell you how I did my Beer Cake. First, I did not have a yellow cake mix but I had a Butter cake mix and I used that. I did not have vanilla pudding but I had Lemon pudding and used that. For adding the beer I used a cup like it said but used the regular directions off the cake mix box. Mixed it all up and baked it like the recipe said to. Then after it was baked I left it in the Tube pan while I made a glaze for it. What I did was use the rest of the beer about 4oz then added about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of butter and a 1 1/3 cup of sugar put it all in a sauce pan and brought it to a boil to make it like a syrup. I poured some over the top of the cake let it soak in then I took cake flipped it on to a plate and drizzled more on the top. Let me tell you that was the most moist cake I had ever had. I had so many comments on it everyone thought it was AWESOME!!!!


I made this cake as an alternative for those who do not eat ice-cream cake that I served at my daughters 8th birthday party. It was a very big hit among all the adults and several of the kids enjoyed it too. I made the cake using Pillsbury yellow cake mix and French Vanilla instant pudding mix and a bottle of Budwiser Beer. I also used exra large eggs. The batter was extremely easy and you need to beat it on high for a couple of minutes. It will become thick and smooth. The cake is very light and fluffy, probably due to the beer. I sprinkled the cake with powdered sugar and it gave it just the right amount of sweetness - is was just perfect. A great way to make a boxed cake just a notch better.


While I was searching for a cake recipe (on the best on-line recipe finder site), I "stumbled" across this Beer Cake and am I glad I did!! All the ingredients were even on hand!! My hubby said QUOTE "Don't lose that recipe, it's the best cake you've ever made" Kinda hurt my feelings since I bake alot and always try making cakes with all the "fancy" ingredients...We even made Strawberry Shortcake the next day and it was better than using a pound cake for that!!
