Marbleous Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze
Bundt cake recipes get even better when you add salted caramel! But you can’t go wrong with any topping when you start with a cake that’s half chocolate, half peanut butter, and completely tender and tasty, thanks to a scoop of sour cream in the batter. If you like (and we do!), serve this bundt cake dessert a la mode.
Lemon Bundt Cake
Here’s how to make bundt cake that will really turn heads: Invest in a geometric Bundt cake pan (sometimes called the “jubilee” pattern). Any dessert, including this simple one-bowl lemon cake, looks elegant almost instantly after being flipped out of the pan.
Tiramisu Chocolate Marble Cake
While chocolate bundt cake is the prevailing flavor here, this beautifully marbled dessert is hiding instant espresso coffee powder and mascarpone cheese. Voilà: Tiramisu, minus the trouble of soaking ladyfingers, staggering layers, and whipping cream. This bundt cake recipe from scratch can be baked in just 25 minutes in a pressure cooker, or try the hands-off three-hour slow cooker strategy.
Vanilla Bean Cake with Pecan-Praline Glaze
This bundt cake recipe from scratch will take your taste buds on a trip to New Orleans. The pecan-praline glaze is the star of this bundt cake dessert. Heavy cream, butter, pecans, and vanilla make it dark caramel-color, drizzly, and completely decadent.
Cornmeal Butter Cake with Pomegranate Sauce
Part corn bread, part bundt cake, the batter for this easy dessert recipe comes together in just one bowl. While the homemade bundt cake bakes, stir together the citrus-infused pomegranate sauce to spoon over each slice.
Tip: If you don’t have—or can’t find—buttermilk, substitute 1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice plus enough regular milk to make 1-1/2 cups. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before stirring into the bundt cake recipe.
Coconut-Pecan Coffee Cake
Serving any coffee cake is a delightful way to start the day, but we’re partial to bundt cake breakfasts. Compared to sheet-pan coffee cakes, bundt cakes offer more surface area for the buttery, crumbly pecan topping to touch the pan for a golden brown, irresistible exterior. Crown this cake with a dusting of cocoa and powdered sugar.
Malted Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze
Discover how to make a bundt cake even more kid-friendly: Just add candy. To give a nod to the malted milk powder in the chocolate bundt cake batter, sprinkle chopped malted milk balls over the chocolate malt glaze.
Rum-Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake
No need to decide between cake or a cocktail: This bundt cake dessert offers a two-for-one. Similar to how fruitcakes are brushed with booze, this perfect-for-the-holidays bundt cake batter is spiked with a couple of shots of rum.
Tip: Make and bake this dessert up to a month in advance and freeze, minus the powdered sugar topping, until you’re ready to thaw and serve.
Bourbon-Chocolate Tipsy Cake
Any time you’re preparing a chocolate bundt cake recipe, you can use this brilliant baking hack: Butter the Bundt cake pan and dust it with cocoa powder, shaking and tilting to evenly coat, to prevent the cake from sticking. This boozy bourbon cake is supremely chocolaty with melted unsweetened and sweet baking chocolate both appearing in the batter.
Triple-Citrus Pound Cake
Think fresh and bake up a flute cake featuring grapefruit, lime, and orange. There’s no wrong time to serve this tangy treat, but we say the orange juice glaze makes this fully appropriate as a bundt cake breakfast! Try sugar-dusted slices of any of the citrus options (or a combo of all three) as an aromatic center topping.
Banana-Nut Pound Cake
Glazed Pumpkin-Pecan Cakes
Take a break from bakery donuts and serve this mini bundt cake recipe as part of your next weekend brunch. Canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and pecans give this eye-catching spiral snack a full dose of fall vibes. (We love this bundt cake breakfast so much that we serve it year-round!)
Chocolate-Peppermint Bundt Cake
Here’s a homemade bundt cake recipe that’s cooler than a candy cane. To complement the batter flavored with chocolate, malted milk, and peppermint extract, complete the chocolate bundt cake with a shower of crushed peppermint candies.
Lavender-Thyme Fluted Cake with Vanilla Creme Glaze
This herbal lavender-thyme creation is similar to a pound cake in consistency. But we like employing a Bundt cake pan for this recipe to give it a fancy appearance that matches the grown-up flavors hiding inside.
Tip: Reserve some extra thyme to add even more eye appeal. Sprinkle leaves on top and garnish your serving platter with whole sprigs.
Bundt Pan Ice Cream Cake
Ice cream occasionally comes served alongside bundt cake recipes. But we’ve taken that idea and turned it on its head by stuffing ice cream or sorbet (customize with your favorite flavor) in the middle of the cake. Talk about an upgrade on an ice cream sandwich!
Cranberry-Orange Bundt Cake
Not all bundt cake recipes feel quite dressy enough for a dinner party or cocktail party treat, but this fruity dessert sure does! Why? We’ve spiked the bundt cake dessert with a Champagne glaze. Just add a dusting of powdered sugar for the final photo-worthy flourish.
It’s not just the raspberries, cranberries, and pomegranate seeds on top that makes this bundt cake dessert fit its fruity moniker. A swirl of seedless raspberry jam sweetens up the cinnamon cake batter. This is one bundt cake recipe that looks even better sliced and plated (to reveal the marble effect) than it does whole!
