Say “hello” to my very first successful bundt cake. Yes, I just said successful.
For others removing the cake might seem like a breeze, for me it was a deal-breaker. I’ve tried lots times and different tricks to remove the cake from the pan without a piece of two stuck to the pan. At one time I had given up even the idea of ever making a bundt cake. It just wasn’t for me I told myself as a consolation.
That until I found the right pan. It’s not a light weight pan like my previous one, doesn’t have too many creases (hope that’s the right word)
My husband loves this pound cake I found a while back on about.com and I’ve made it lots of times in a loaf pan but this time I wanted to make it in my brand-new bundt pan.
Although I think I should have taken the cake out 1-2 minutes earlier, it still turned out moist and tender and in one piece. I saw so happy I did a little dance. Now I can dream of bundt cakes again. I’m already planning to get myself a new pan with a new design like this one, or maybe even this one, and if I feel adventurous I may even join my friend Lora and her #bundtamonth. I can do it! yes, I can now make bundt cakes!! Yuppy!
The bundt cake is made with Chobani Yogurt to keep it moist even after few days. When the cake was completely cooled I melted a bag of Wilton white candy and poured it over the cake. For the red drizzle (it had to have that Christmas-y look) I melted Wilton red candy and drizzled it over the white coating.
I was so excited about the cake that I didn’t realize once the cake is covered in white candy it will be a little hard to slice. Indeed, the candy coating cracks a little when slicing, but it’s not impossible to serve, plus it keep the moisture inside making this cake delicious to the last crumb. Serve it with cream or fresh fruit, or even more yogurt like we did.
