Mom's Special Bundt Cake or New Year Cake

This was one of my favorite treats growing up. My mom always made it during the holidays and again on New Years Day. It has become a tradition for me to make it on or near New Year's Day now. I always look forward to it with much anticipation... and drooling. I was surprised how easy it was to make when my mom finally gave me her recipe. Gotta love those easy recipes!!

Mom's Special Bundt Cake (New Year Cake)

1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 pkg vanilla pudding mix
3/4 c water
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 c sour cream
4 eggs
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 c sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon

Frosting
1/4 c evaporated milk
1 - 2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients together (except cinnamon and sugar) and beat well. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Grease Bundt pan well. Sprinkle part of the cinnamon and sugar mixture on the bottam of the bundt pan. Pour in about 1/3 of the cake batter. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture, and then more cake batter. Continue to layer batter and sugar/cinnamon mixture until they are both gone. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 - 50 minutes.
Let cake cool for about 10 minutes. Then flip bundt pan over to dislodge cake. Mix the evaporated milk and powdered sugar together until you get a fairly runny consistency. Drizzle over cake and serve.
