With New Year’s swiftly approaching, it seems like the right time to try out a bundt cake (and that skillet will see a peppercorn tri-tip steak soon). I’ve never made one before, so I’m not exactly sure what to expect. But I’m happy to find that there are so many different recipes out there. Here are some of the highlights.
From Alton Brown
Apple spiced bundt cake with rum glaze
From Martha Stewart
Devil’s food bundt cake with ganache
From The Oregonian’s Foodday
Several varieties, including blood orange and rosemary; hazelnut cranberry; apple; and whiskey-soaked dark chocolate
And because it’s a novelty, if nothing else: Buzzfeed has a visual list of bundt recipes.
UPDATE: I missed this before I posted originally, but The New York Times offers a video of how to make a Flaming Baba Au Ruhm in a bundt pan, which looks pretty fancy — and fun. And a hat tip to my mom, who left a comment: She suggests a Harvey Wallbanger cake, in vogue in the ’70s.
