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.
As I point out in my first post about this chocolate cake base – you wouldn’t know it was vegan. And that applies to this yummy peanut butter frosting, too.
This is an elegant little cake – very classy and not too sweet (which is why I felt compelled to drizzle it with Nutella).
I don’t think I’ve ever seen an entire cake consumed so quickly and completely. The birthday girl got to take home one final slice, but otherwise this cake disappeared. And it got high praise from kids and adults alike.
