Crack Cake

by 247tasty

Have you had the best cake in your life? I assume not yet because what I’m about to share with you today is the best cake ever! Just kidding, it is the best cake for me! I learned how to make this when I was studying abroad. I read a lot of recipe books back then and this was the one recipe that got me. So, years later, I remembered this recipe and gave it a try. Good thing that I did because I never would have eaten such an amazing cake if I hadn’t tried it! Everything you need is included in the ingredients list and set of instructions below. Just follow them carefully to guide you to perfection! Good luck and have fun!



1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
1 box vanilla pudding instant mix
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
4 eggs
¾ cup of water
¾ cup oil
½ cup white wine (really any kind, but I always use my go-to pinot grigio)
any cake with my favorite ingredient, wine, works for me


1 stick butter
1 cup of sugar
¼ cup white wine

How to make Crack Cake

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Refer to the package of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix on how to mix the cake.

Step 3: In the same bowl with the cake mix, add brown sugar, white sugar, pudding instant mix, cinnamon, eggs, water, oil, and white wine. Whisk until all the ingredients are well-blended.

Step 4: Transfer the batter into a baking pan.

Step 5: Place the pan inside the oven and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean after pinching the center of the cake.

To make the Glaze:

Step 6:  While the cake is baking, place a skillet on the stove and turn the heat to low. Once hot, add the butter and let it melt then and 1/4 cup of wine.

Step 7: Pour the butter and wine mixture over the cake. Pinch little holes on the cake using a toothpick to let the cake absorb all the liquid mixture.

Step 8: Move the pan into a wire and let it sit to cool.

Step 9: Use a spatula and run it in circles around the cake to loosen the sides.

Step 10: Prepare a serving plate and flip out the pan onto the serving plate.

Step 11: Serve and Enjoy!
