Hello and welcome!  If you’re a newcomer, I certainly appreciate you taking the time to click on this recipe.  If you’re a long-time reader/viewer, thank you so much (all the more) for sticking around all this time!  It’s certainly great to be up-and-running after our international move, settling in process, (the broken toe), and all the new changes to my cooking show on Facebook.

As soon as my show if finished live-recording, I’ll embed the video right here.  I’ve you’ve clicked on over to view the text recipe of this great little cake, again, thank you so much for taking the time to do so.

Update: Here it is! It’s a bit of a disaster, but we DID complete our cake! I had a sound problem until the 4:29 time mark. You can skip ahead to that time mark and get full audio. 🙂

I made this little cake for my oldest daughter’s 18th birthday just a few weeks ago.  I was in the middle of a very busy time, but I still wanted to make something special for her.  As a military kid, she always seems to be moving or in some state of upheaval during her birthday season.  She doesn’t like icing, and there are so many fresh berries available this time of year, I thought of this quick little bundt cake.   It was simple and fun to make.  Best of all, she loved it!

Buttermilk Bundt Cake

You’ll need one large “Nordicware” bundt pan for this.  I wrote this recipe specifically for the large style bundt pan.  A smaller (more shallow) bundt pan would cause a huge mess in your oven, as it will probably overflow.  If you only have a more shallow bundt pan, then half the recipe, and/or be sure to put a cookie sheet under the pan while it bakes…..and hope for the best.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In large bowl combine:

4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

mix well with whisk.

In the mixing bowl for your heavy duty mixer (I use kitchenaid) cream:

2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted, room temperature butter

3 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternatively with

1 1/2 cups buttermilk.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour 20 minutes.  This is almost as dense as a pound cake, and the pan is very deep.  It will take a while to bake.

Garnish with fresh berries, a dusting of powdered sugar, and fresh whipped cream.

I hope you are having a peaceful day, wherever you are.  Thank you so much for visiting this website, and thank you for taking the time to watch my videos.

Best wishes,

Shannon Vavich
