Bundt cake Recipe

Today we bring you a basic Bundt cake recipe. Why is it called Bundt cake – because of the pan which is shaped like a ring. Otherwise nothing fancy just a simple and incredible pound cake recipe that gets an extra boost of flavor from milk and sugar glaze.

Prepared with basic ingredients from the pantry and refrigerator. My little one hates egg and cannot stand its smell so to mask the flavor of egg in this recipe I have added 2 teaspoon Orange juice. But again it’s optional – skipping it entirely will not harm the recipe. Overall a yummy, flavorful and lovely textured cake

To glaze or not to glaze is entirely up to you. This cake itself is so moist and fluffy that it can be enjoyed as is. Below I have demonstrated two ways to glaze. For cake 1 – glaze was cooled in the refrigerator  before applying it to the cake. That’s why it was thick and dense. In cake 2 – glaze was drizzled right away and because of that my glaze was very runny, it pooled around the edges and ran down the sides of the cake making it look like an overflowing volcano. Both flavors (cake and glaze) complement each other wonderfully without overpowering.

    Let me admit my first cake failed, my mistake I couldn’t wait for it to rise. Seeing it rise made me go crazy as the first time in my life my cake was rising. So the result – it dropped in the center 🙁 . Next time I followed your each and every step to the T and I HAVE A WONDERFUL CAKE SITTING IN FRONT OF ME STARING AT ME TO EAT ME UP. You are great Ruchi, thanks for making my day.

    I’m a huge baking fan and love baking. Tried this cake over the weekend and this cake is marvelous. Bad part I couldn’t save it around long enough for next day…it was all gone. Perfect recipe and a keeper! Perfect for big holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. I was too lazy for the glaze so I used store bought strawberry frosting and finished it up.

    Hi, I was wondering about the ingredients for the glaze, calls for cocoa or chocolate syrup, yet the pics of the glaze look white? Doesn’t the cocoa-chocolate syrup make the glaze chocolate flavored and wouldn’t it be a darker color?
    I prefer a vanilla flavor glaze for bundt cake. I will try recipe this weekend, sure it will be great.

    • Ruchi says:

      Yes the glaze should be darker in color.
      That was the initial plan but something went wrong and had to settle with a white glaze for the cake. 🙂
