Mix all cake ingredients together. Beat well and add 1 cup boiling water and 1 t. vanilla. (It's ok if it's pretty runny)
Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake 350 for 35-40 minutes.

karaburun,
I hope you enjoy it. Let me know how it comes out. My grandmother use to make this for the grandchildren everytime they came over to her house so it brings back good memories for us.

Karo syrup is corn syrup. In this case, white or clear corn syrup.

Perhaps a simple sugar syrup that's been reduced? I'm not a baking expert, maybe someone else can chime in.

I'm not sure if you could substitute anything. I think that when baking you would need to use the product not only because of the taste, but because of the consistency of the syrup. Check out this website it will tell you a little about Karo syrup. You might have a product with similar ingredients that you could use.

Would cornstarch help thicken the sugar syrup to a reasonable consistency? :?
