What is Kentucky butter cake?
Kentucky butter cake is a classic Southern pound cake with a moist, tender crumb and sweet butter glaze that makes it taste almost like a cake version of an old-fashioned doughnut. After the bundt cake is baked, it’s poked with holes while still in the pan. Then a sweet, warm butter sauce is poured over the bottom that soaks into the cake and sets up to form a cake like no other with a delicious crunchy sugar crust.
