The Cake with a Time-Saving Secret
show food contributor Elizabeth Heiskell comes from a very long line of amazing cooks, going back to her great-grandmother, a master cake baker.

, is a busy host's dream: You combine seven ingredients in a bowl, mix and pour into a greased Bundt pan. Less than an hour later, you'll have a gorgeous cake that's moist, delicious and beautiful (especially sprinkled with powdered sugar).
