BUTTER SAUCE:
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter (no substitutions)
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.



Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or a 12-cup bundt pan.



In a large bowl combine all cake ingredients; beat on low speed until moistened, then beat for another 3 minutes at medium speed.



Pour the batter into prepared pan.



Bake for 50-60 minutes or until cake tests done.



For the butter sauce; in a saucepan, over low heat combine all sauce ingredients; cook just until the butter melts, stirring occasionally (do not boil).



When cake is done remove from oven and pierce all over cake with a large fork or a long thin straw; pour the sauce all over the warm cake.



Let stand 5 minutes, or until sauce is absorbed.
