Crack Cake Recipe


For the Cake:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) vanilla pudding mix
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup sweet white wine (Riesling recommended)

For the Glaze:

  • ½ cup salted butter
  • ¼ cup sweet white wine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  1. Preheat and Prep: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray and set aside.
  2. Mix Cake Ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the cake ingredients. Beat until the mixture is fully blended and smooth.
  3. Bake the Cake: Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean and the edges start to pull away from the pan.
  4. Prepare the Glaze: In a small saucepan, heat the butter, wine, and sugar over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved, then remove from heat.
  5. Glaze the Cake: While the cake is still in the pan, use a bamboo skewer or toothpick to poke holes all over the bottom. Pour the glaze evenly over the cake, allowing it to soak in for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Remove from Pan: Once the glaze is absorbed, carefully loosen the sides of the cake with a spatula. Invert the cake onto a cake plate.
  7. Serve: Slice and serve the cake. Enjoy!
