  3. Pour the cake batter into a greased bundt pan.
  4. Bake at 350°F (176°C) for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan.
  6. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter for the syrup. Whisk in sugar substitute, vanilla, and water until dissolved.

  8. Pour the butter mixture over the cake, ensuring the holes are filled.
  9. Swirl the pan around to distribute the syrup evenly.
  10. Let the cake cool for 1 hour.
