Praline Bundt Cake

pralinebundtcakeOne of my favorite cookies to make during Christmas requires a butter flavored cake mix. I usually buy a couple of boxes in November to have on hand for when I decide to make the cookies. However, I mistakenly bought a yellow cake mix and it has been in our cabinet since.

Last week I decided I needed to use it but didn’t want to make the cake itself. I flipped through some cookbooks and found a recipe for this bundt cake and decided I would make it since I had all the ingredients.
