Simple yet super good. This cake is super addicting, and a slice will not be enough. I love to make this for all occasions. This crack cake has been my all-time favourite go-to. To jump-start my mornings, I love a slice of this crack cake with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

My mom used to make this cake when I was little. Being an only child, I was spoiled with all the sweets and treats. That is where my fascination with desserts started. For my go-to cake recipes, I always gravitate to the ones I can easily modify. With this crack cake recipe, I can use either red velvet cake or chocolate or Funfetti and still expects great results. This recipe is proven by many people and myself. It’s a must and a keeper!



4 eggs
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 box vanilla pudding instant mix
2 tsp cinnamon
¾ cup water
½ cup white wine (you can use any kind, my go-to pinot grigio)
¾ cup oil


1 c. sugar
¼ c. white wine
1 stick butter

How to make Crack Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Using your hands or a hand mixer, mix the cake ingredients.

Step 3: Generously grease a bundt pan with butter or Pam Baking Spray.

Step 4: Into the prepared pan, pour the batter. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about an hour or until a cake tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Step 5: After the cake is out of the oven, start melting 1 stick of butter into 1 cup sugar and 1/4 c. wine until well blended.

Step 6: Poke holes on the cake, then pour the glaze over. Let it cool.

Step 7: Onto a plate, flip the cake out. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
