This is my goddaughter Farrah's favorite cake and is very reminiscent of a jelly donut. This cake is very forgiving and can be made with any other flavored jam. Plan ahead because the cake needs to sit overnight for the flavors to meld.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).

  • Beat cake mix, eggs, milk, and butter until well combined. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan, 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Use an apple corer to poke holes along the middle of the cake, making sure not to poke all the way through. Remove cake from the corer before making the next hole. Leave a 1/2-inch border on the inner and outer edges of the pan.

  • Microwave strawberry jam for 1 minute. Stir and continue microwaving in 15-second intervals until jam is melted and pourable. Pour jam into the holes and let cake sit in the pan for at least 1 hour.

  • Run a table knife around the inner and outer edges of the pan to loosen. Invert cake carefully onto a serving plate.

  • Mix powdered sugar and milk together until well combined. Brush glaze over the cake and let sit overnight so flavors can meld.

Cook's Note:

If you do not have an apple corer, you can use the end of a wooden spoon.

The cake box butter cake as made in this recipe was wildly delicious. I used apricot jam and it tasted great. I didn’t have an Apple corer so I did the wooden spoon method. Next time I’ll use a straight potato peeler. It will take some cake out. With the spoon method most of the jam pooled at the base of the cake. I really liked the way the powdered sugar glaze soaked into the cake. Make sure to follow the recipe as it states in terms of cooling and moving the cake away from the pan. It will stick if you don’t. Read More
