Due to a pan-related mishap (silicone bundt pans are officially dead to me), this cake turned out a bit homely. But it proved that looks can be deceiving – the inside is just lovely.
Sometimes I like the frosting even more than the cake. Even if it’s a good cake. This vanilla bundt is a good cake. But I *may* have eaten more than a little of this browned butter glaze with a spoon.
I really like bundt cakes. And not just because with the right pan, they pretty much decorate themselves. No, I like bundt cakes because they’re typically a dense and moist cake – which is my preference. They also ought to be able to stand on their own without much frosting.
Kudos to Heather over at Sprinkle Bakes – author of the recipe. It’s a flavorful and absolutely lovely cake. (And, her pictures are better. I can admit it.) I’ll be curious to explore her confections further.
