an unexpected sweet bundt treat
Now I know that when you think of Holiday desserts pumpkin is at the top of the list . As crazy as this might sound, my family are not big pumpkin lovers so we have always had several additional options besides the traditional pumpkin pie….one always being a bundt cake.
We love the traditional bundts but we also love this chocolate, chocolate chip bundt cake for chocolate lovers. A new favorite is this butter bundt. It is lighter than a more dense cream cheese bundt cake but still super rich and full of butter love in each bite.
When my brother and sis-in-law were down a month or so ago we had a big family dinner and I wanted to make a dessert that everyone was sure to love but something new and this butter bundt was definitely part of the plan. I wanted to do little bundt cakes as I had a very grand plan to make them into a beautiful display with some ice cream in the center and then drizzled with salted caramel sauce and maybe some chocolate sauce as well…unfortunately everyone ate so many Sandy McNuggets that no one had any room for dessert that night, so I sent these cute little cakes home with them to enjoy on their own.

To make this bundt Holiday perfection you can fill the middle with fresh cranberries with a few mint leaves for the presentation or even better add in some cranberries and orange zest to the batter for a cranberry orange butter bundt. You could also serve it with your own caramel sauce or ice cream for an unexpected Holiday treat (especially for the kids).
The Holidays are usually all about the pumpkin (& maybe some apple & pecan as well) but this year surprise everyone with this super light but still rich butter bundt cake.
