A Bundt cake is a classic Southern cake, and enjoying one means knowing that these sweet treats have never gone out of style.
Almost every Southern kitchen has a Bundt pan, and the familiar ring-shaped, ridged pan can turn the mundane into the magnificent—it makes every cake recipe seem special. Most Bundt cakes get only the simplest of toppings: a little sugar glaze, or a dusting of powdered sugar. The goodness is in the variety of delicious batters, baked to golden perfection, or packed with flavors including lemon, almond, and chocolate. Here in the Southern Living Test Kitchen we've taken our love for the Bundt cake even further.
Some of our favorite recipes include the Apple-Cream Cheese Bundt Cake, the Apple-Spice Bundt Cake with Caramel Frosting, and the Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake. For a rich, chocolaty, decadent delight, you'll love a Dark Chocolate Bundt Cake packed with bold flavor and made in four easy steps. For a taste of the South, put a Praline Bundt Cake on the plate and you'll feel like you've got the flavors of the Big Easy right there. However you shape them, Bundt cakes are perfect right out of the pan.
