Strawberry Bundt Cake



For sometime now I have been admiring the wonderful Bundt cakes created by Rachel at DollyBakes. Since December a shiny new Bundt tin has been sitting in the cupboard waiting to be used, and I  spotted the perfect recipe the Springtime Strawberry Bundt at DollyBakes.

I halved Rachel's original recipe as my tin was half the size of a standard bundt, and obviously needed less time in the oven.  I made sure I greased the tin thoroughly, and the cake turned out easily and all in one piece.

I decorated the cake with some some simple runny icing - icing sugar with a little water and a spot of strawberry essence and red food colouring then sprinkled with a touch of glitter. A quick photo and then the Strawberry Bundt Cake was then packed off to work to help  celebrate a colleagues birthday. 

The cake tasted wonderful and the texture was light and moist, I always thought that Bundt cakes looked quite a dry cake but how wrong I was. Loved the idea of using yogurt in the recipe it really worked a treat.

  1. Your first bundt cake looks beautiful. I like the smaller size tin, too. The traditional bundt tins are HUGE! In the States, bundt cakes are always very moist and slightly heavier than most cakes. They seem to get better with age, but they never last that long at our house! : )

    1. I was worried the small tin would not be big enough, but the cake provided slices enough to keep everyone in the office happy :)
      Gosh I bet the big tins take some baking!

  5. That is one stunning looking cake and the flavours sound delicious. What a relief it must have been when it turned out of the tin so well. I've been on the look out for a plain ring mould but have had no luck in finding one.
