Preheat oven to 325. Spray a bundt pan with Baker's Joy. Place all cake ingredients in a large bowl; mix on low 30 seconds, then on medium for 3 minutes. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 65-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. When cake is done, make the glaze. Combine all ingredients in small saucepan over medium-low. Stir continuously until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Do not boil. Poke holes all over the warm cake and pour the glaze on evenly. Allow cake to cool completely, then invert cake onto a serving plate.
