Praline Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

Love filled Bundt cakes? A special pan creates the tunnel while baking so the cake is ready to fill when cool. It’s easy!



  • 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup caramel topping

Brown Sugar Glaze

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Generously grease shaped Bundt pan and Bundt Tunnel Insert with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour. Line 6 regular-sized muffin cups with paper baking cups.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
  3. Stir in toffee bits.
  4. Place 4 cups batter in Bundt pan. Place tunnel insert on center of Bundt pan.
  5. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with remaining batter.
  6. Bake cake for 35 to 40 minutes and cupcakes 18 to 20 minutes.
  7. Using sharp or serrated knife, immediately cut off excess cake across top of Bundt and tunnel insert pans. Carefully loosen insert pan; remove.
  8. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack, placing cake tunnel side down.
  9. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  10. Turn cake over and spoon softened cream cheese into tunnel.
  11. Drizzle caramel topping over cream cheese; swirl with knife.
  12. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes or until filling is set.
  13. Place cake filled side down on serving plate.
  14. In 1-quart saucepan, cook brown sugar, corn syrup and whipping cream over low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved.
  15. Serve warm glaze over cake.
  16. Store covered in refrigerator.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): No change.

Be sure to cook the glaze over low heat to dissolve the sugar. Cooking over a higher heat will cause the glaze to thicken too much.

Try 1/2 cup chopped pecans in place of the toffee bits.
