Vanilla bundt cake from scratch
Ever since I came across a bundt tin in a cake supplies shop I have been fascinated by bundt cakes. They look beautiful and I love the way they look. The bundt cake tins come in many love shapes and sizes. Since I am not into too much decorating of my cakes bundt cakes are ideal because they do not need and any of the fondant icings or butter icings which cover a lot of cakes. In this video I show you how to bake a vanilla bundt cake from scratch. I baked it one of my Nordic ware U.K bundt tins.
The bundt tin is enough to make to make it look beautiful and all you need to do is sprinkle a bit of icing sugar or drizzle some icing on top.
I will be sharing quite a few bundt cake recipes on my blog which you should feel free to try. Bundt cake tins can be quite expensive so if you are not ready to invest in one then there are other options to bake the same recipe. Read my baking suggestions at the end of this post to find out which other tins you can use.
