1 teaspoon baking soda
Directions Preparation:10min › Cook:35min › Extra time:30min › Ready in:1hour15min
Prepare batter and bake cake as directed on the package.
About 5 minutes before the cake is finished baking, melt the butter in a large saucepan to allow for foaming, then stir in the evaporated milk. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat then stir in the corn syrup and sugar. Bring back to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar, turn off the heat, and add the baking soda. Stir continuously until the baking soda is mixed in and stops foaming, about 2 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven, and poke holes in the hot cake with a butter knife or the end of a wooden spoon. Pour the syrup over the hot cake, and let cool before cutting.
