  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Do not bring to a boil.
  2. Poke holes all over the warm cake with a knife and pour the butter glaze evenly over the cake while still in the pan.
  3. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan and then invert the cake onto a serving plate. I sprinkled it with powdered sugar.
  4. Enjoy!
