Butter Cake with Butter Sauce

Yep....butter and more butter....not so calorie friendly, but Hey! if you add fruit to the top then that helps...right? RIGHT?!?! I love this cake.  Enough said. It is a definite keeper. YUM!

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup real butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour bundt pan.  Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda, set aside. Cream together 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar and then blend in the eggs, mix in buttermilk and vanilla adding in the flour alternately with the buttermilk.  Pour into a bundt pan and bake for 1 hour.  For the sauce~in a medium sauce pan over medium heat heat the sugar, water and butter, bring to a low boil.  Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves and take care not to burn the sugar. Add vanilla and stir well.  When the cake is still very hot and in the pan, poke holes all over the top of the cake**I used the end of a small wooden spoon**.  Drizzle the sauce all over the cake.  Transfer to a plate and dust with powder sugar.  Enjoy and don't think about the calories!!
