my special Holiday cakes that dresses up our table. This is a cake
that says wow, here I am and I am dressed for the occasion.
So if you love Bundt cakes and eggnog, this is a recipe for you. If
eggnog is not your thing, but bundt cakes are you might like
Blackberry Studded Lemon Pound Cake.
I pretty much adore bundt cakes, maybe it is the shape of the pan,
the density of the cake or the way the frosting drapes itself over each
little crook of the cake, I am really not quite certain but this cake is
here along with a little information on choosing a bundt pan.
Before I became obsessed with Bundt cakes, I did not know that
there are different sizes of bundt pans. They come in all shapes and
sizes and some of them are amazingly intricate. If you are a
seasoned bundt pan cake maker (that is a mouth full) then this will
not apply to you, if you are not I suggest you stay away from them,
for a while and for this recipe. This pan is the original bundt design
and will accommodate 12 cups of batter, Nordicware Classic. This is
just an example of a pan-mine is not Nordicware.
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup softened unsalted butter
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
Mixing up the Glaze:
Soften butter at room temperature
Sift powder sugar in mixing bowl
Add softened butter
Beat until creamy and well blended
Add 2 tsp vanilla
Gradually add heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup at a time until creamy-you may add more or less depending on the thickness you desire-I Love mine thick!!
Pour over cooled bundt cake and garnish with raspberries.
Mixing up the Batter:
Preparing the Bundt Pan:
Generously spray 12 cup bundt pan (or larger) with Baker Joy's- I love this stuff so much easier than
greasing and flouring and the results are always great. It is important to use this size of pan, since this
is a very dense cake and if you do not use this size of bundt pan or larger you will have batter
overflowing. Not a happy sight.
of your cake, if it come out clean it is done) Cool in pan for 30 to 45 minutes on a wire rack. Invert
the cake onto the wire rack and let it continue to rest for another 30 minutes-remove cake from pan.
