    Grease and flour cake pan (use butter to grease pan). Pour batter into pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. You can use the toothpick readiness test.

    Remove cake from the oven and allow to cool while the glaze is prepared.

    Making the Glaze:
    Put all ingredients for the glaze into a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When it comes to almost a boil, remove from heat and stir well for several minutes, then pour and spread glaze evenly on cake.
