Is there anything more beautiful than a Bundt cake? With as many possibilities as there are pan designs, it’s an easy way to make a fancy, festive-looking cake with little effort. From the standard ring to a decorative jubilee imprint, from rose to heart shapes, and from mini cakelets to squares, the Bundt iterations are endless. They are so attractive they hardly need any embellishment, but some powdered sugar or a tasty glaze can make for a particularly show stopping finishing touch.

 

Invented in 1950 and popularized in the decades to follow, the Bundt pan never totally went out of style but has seen a recent resurgence, and we just can’t get enough. Modern bakers are using intricate designs and inspired flavors that make us want to throw on an apron and hop in the kitchen, stat.

April – Purple Carrot Bundt Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Drizzle 

Celebrate Spring and Easter with this fun take on carrot cake. Purple carrots and a honey cream cheese drizzle give this classic dessert a simple but spectacularly fresh spin.

Happy Easter everyone! If you’re looking for a simple, yet delicious sweet treat for the holidays, this wholewheat purple carrot bundt cake with honey cream cheese drizzle is quite perfect for the occasion. Link is in my profile 😊💜 • I’ve been rather quiet this past week…i usually tend to retreat into silence when mourning an event as terrible as the happenings in Egypt this past Palm Sunday. Two churches were bombed, & many lost their lives. Nothing could be more despicable than targeting innocent people as they celebrate & worship. This isn’t the first time (nor the second or 3rd, nor do i think will it be the last) this happens, & it feels like it’s simply being allowed to. My hopes for a better Egypt are pretty much non-existent at this point, & it’s a bitter reality to have to accept & process.

A complete tea party in cake form, this Earl Grey tea and lavender Bundt cake is topped with a bright lemon glaze that’s perfect for spring. Perfect for brunch, afternoon tea, or just because.

 

My Earl Grey tea and lavender bundt cake with a lemon Glaze. So this is the prettiest cake I have done in the longest time. And it really needs no dressing ….no frosting… That’s what makes it so pretty. A day after the cake was cut, the flavour of the Earl Grey tea has matured and aged and the lavender has mellowed. And the lemon Glaze, the lemon flavour blends with the Earl Grey and it’s almost like drinking a cup of tea. Like I said before if you trust my basic flavour combinations you have to try this cake. It’s on the blog now. Link in bio.

June – Lime and Coconut Mini Bundt Cakes

The tropical flavors of these lime and coconut mini Bundt cakes are pure summer. One bite may just transport you to a beach location where the sun is shining and the ocean breeze is blowing.

There’s something about mini bundt cakes 😍. I’m getting back into the kitchen and trying to finish some recipes that I was working on before going on holidays. On winter days like these, nothing beats coming home after work and turning on the oven to bake a cake or a loaf of bread – the house ends up smelling amazing and it makes the whole place cosy and warm. These lime and coconut mini bundt cakes should hopefully be hitting the website soon but I’m being distracted by my no knead hokkaido milk bread recipe and trying to get my sourdough starter going again after its little sleep in the fridge for the past fortnight.

December – Gingerbread Wreath Bundt Cake

Finally, welcome the holiday season – and say farewell to a great year of Bundt cakes – with this festive gingerbread wreath Bundt cake. This richly spiced cake makes the perfect edible centerpiece for your holiday table.

gingerbread bundt cake. aka gingerbread wreath cake. aka gramacy tavern gingerbread, the recipe by the inimitable Claudia Fleming, available on @epicurious. a deeply spiced and deliciously moist cake that is complemented well by whipped cream. which was a good thing because when i tried to unmold the cake, the entire circle of the cake stuck to the pan on the bottom and the only way to salvage it to make remotely presentable was to cover it with a mound of fluffy cream. phew! #ediblewreath #tistheseason #howiholiday #holidaybaking #christmasbaking ジンジャーブレッドケーキ。モラセス(糖蜜)、黒ビール、黒糖、スパイスなどで色は真っ黒、味もパンチがきいています。好みが分かれるでしょうがわたしは好き。とてもおいしかったのですが、入念に型の準備をしたにも関わらず、型の底にケーキがごそっと張り付いて、型から外したケーキは上半分がない状態に(号泣)。焼き直そうかと思いましたが、生クリームをぽってりつけて強引にごまかしました。。ごく控えめに甘みをつけて泡だてた生クリームが濃いケーキとよく合っていてよかったです。。 #クリスマスのお菓子 #クリスマスケーキ #バントケーキ
