One of my favorite things in the world is cake. The main reason why this blog turned into a baking website was because I wanted to make cakes.
One recipe after another, Woman Scribbles blossomed into a baking blog, a turn that I did not quite expect.
Today, I am sharing a simple cake recipe that is perfect as a dessert to have at home, but stunning enough to serve at your next celebration. Maple Pecan Bundt Cake.
Maple Pecan Bundt Cake
- Features a moist buttery cake that is baked beautifully in a 10-inch bundt pan.
- The topping is a buttery sweet caramel, laden with crunchy pecans.
Let’s Make it
Prepare your Pan. Lightly brush a 10-inch bundt pan with melted butter. Dust the pan with flour then shake off the excess.
Make the Topping. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar, maple and chopped pecans and stir just until the sugar is dissolved.
Turn off the heat and carefully pour the caramel into the bundt pan. Set aside.
Make the Cake Batter.
Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
In a mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Add a third of the flour mixture to the bowl, followed by half of the buttermilk. Beat just until incorporated. Add another third of the flour, followed by the remaining buttermilk then beat to combine.
Finally, add the remaining flour and beat briefly just until the mixture is combined. Do not overbeat.
Pour the batter over the pecan topping on the bundt pan. Bake at 325 F for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center of the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool slightly, then turn it over to a rimmed cake plate. Serve.
I hope you enjoy this cake, guys. Make sure to tune in for more simple recipes!
