Why do I like bundt cakes? Because I am a terrible layer cake maker. The layers are never the same thickness, one side is always higher than the other, and icing generally runs down the sides onto the plate. You should see all my failures, and you’d know I’m speaking the truth!!
A bundt cake is different. It’s a single thickness, requires nothing more than a simple glaze and glides right out of the pan without falling apart….most of the time.
Bundt cakes are fun because there are so many different pan designs. I have to confess, however, that some are better than others when it comes to cleaning. The more detail, the harder to clean. I have thrown a couple of pans away because they were too much of a pain to clean!
Several friends have had birthdays in the last few days, and using the pan I was able to make each one his/her own cake. It was a little bit of a risk to try a brand new recipe, but luckily, it turned out great. It is a Pecan Spice Cake with Caramel/Rum Glaze from Southern Living. Should you make individual cakes, the recipe is good for 10-12. If you still are looking for a Thanksgiving dessert or one for a holiday party, this is a good one.
Cuisine Kathleen, I’ve saved one just for you for challenging your readers to a bundtathon. It will be fun to see how everyone put their unique creative touches on all things bundt!
