Valentines is one of those Holidays that not only celebrates the love of your life but it also celebrates dessert. Most typically chocolate desserts are on the menu, but for The Hubby chocolate is not what his heart desires. He loves caramel anything so I thought to bring two favorites together. Caramel & Cake. Can it get any better?
Caramel & Bundt = Perfection
This year I decided to make a bundt cake. I just love a rich & buttery bundt cake and when paired with caramel it becomes AMAZING!! I also love how pretty this bundt cake is.
Without any topping at all the cake is already pretty, especially when you use a pan like this one http://amzn.to/1nuZjOW … I just love the little swirls on the side of the cake.
Not so skinny, but of soooo GOOD
Now I am not going to lie this is not a skinny cake but what a better day to cheat than on the day of love with your love.
This decadent cake starts with all the basics of your favorite pound cake but then there is a little surprise…greek yogurt. I love greek yogurt in this cake for several reasons. First it adds a tons of moisture to the cake. It also adds a little tang and a lightness that makes this cake very decadent but still light and airy.
Now the cake on its own would be perfect…and if you wanted to serve it with some fresh berries & a little whipped cream it would be a great dessert, but for Valentines I wanted to make it a little more special and caramel was the answer.
Get to baking
The caramel sauce is a simple sauce but full flavor, but if you don’t want to make your own use your favorite jarred sauce…this is one of my favorite jar caramel sauces http://amzn.to/1nuZ6LB, but another brand would work as well, just make sure it is rich and creamy.
Real quick can we talk about the platter real quick. It is a Nora Fleming platter that my Godmother gave me for my birthday. I LOVE it so much. You can change out the little ornaments making it perfect for each holiday to get together. This would be a perfect addition to your serving platter collection. You can also check out some of the ornaments for the platter here.
One more little addition was the addition of a few little Valentines sprinkles making it perfect for this sweet holiday.
If your love is not a chocolate lover then this sweet dessert is the perfect treat. It is rich & buttery but still light making it a perfect little dessert.
