Granny Cake - So Easy!

– 1 (14 ounce) box yellow cake mix – 3 large eggs – ½ cup vegetable oil – 1 cup milk – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained – 2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed – 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Cake Ingredients:

– 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick) (If you only have unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt.) – 1 cup evaporated milk (canned milk, not sweetened condensed milk) – 1/2 cup granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze Ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan or dish with nonstick baking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, add all of the cake ingredients except for the pineapple, brown sugar and nuts and mix with an electric mixer on medium to medium-high speed until well combined.

Add the pineapple (undrained) and stir in with a large spoon or silicone spatula.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then sprinkle the brown sugar and chopped nuts over the batter. Bake for approximately 33-40 minutes.

In a small saucepan add the butter, evaporated milk and granulated sugar. Heat on medium-low heat and stir frequently until the sugar is dissolved. Heat to a low boil and simmer about 2 minutes, stirring continuously. remove the pan from the heat source and add the vanilla and stir.

Once the cake is baked, remove the cake from the oven and set it on a cooling rack, poke holes into the cake with a skewer and pour the glaze over the hot cake.

Let the cake cool for several hours so that the glaze has ample time to soak into the cake and for the cake to firm up a little.
