Bourbon Nut Bundt Cake
Bourbon is my favorite spirit so the fact that I love this Bourbon Nut Bundt Cake comes as no surprise to anyone. Bourbon in the cake and on top in the rich white glaze. Yum!
Besides the bourbon, I love the cake because it has such a light texture. It basically reminds me of a donut because it is so fluffy in texture. The vanilla cake mix and the vanilla pudding create a great tasting cake that has a delectable texture.
I’ve been making this cake for years because it is so easy to make and everyone loves it. You’ll love that you just need a few ingredients. As well, you just need one bowl!
The most stress thing about this cake is getting it out to the bundt pan in one piece. I find that the best way to ensure that happening is 2 things. One- you need to REALLY grease the bundt pan well so that it doesn’t stick. Two- you need to let the cake completely cool in the pan. If you take it out too soon it tends to break apart.
I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful cake. Basically, I can never get enough of this cake because of its ease to make and how wonderfully delicious it is. You’ll love having a big bite of it.
If you are looking for a great gift for the holidays, then check out this Bourbon Nut Cake. Everyone will love getting a beautiful, delicious bundt cake. And if not, just steal it back from them and eat it all yourself!
