So Easy to Make!
Bundt cakes are the ultimate cakes for the lazy baker. They require little prep time and no or little to no decorating afterwards. For this pineapple cake recipe, I added the pineapple directly into the batter for the most flavor. To garnish the top, I add just a simple whipped cream frosting topped with maraschino cherries and pineapple chunks. The simplicity is elegant and eye-catching!
Secret Bundt Cake Ingredient!
My secret to making a moist and delicious bundt cake is to add melted chocolate to the batter. The chocolate adds incredible moisture to the cake and just a little bit of flavor. For this pineapple cake recipe I used white chocolate; for others, I use dark or milk chocolate.
How cute is this mini pineapple?! It’s a sweet, South African variety! I bought this one at Safeway and I’ve seen them at Whole Foods, too.
Bundt Cake Baking Tip!
Have you ever baked a bundt cake only for it to get stuck in the pan? Worst feeling ever! To avoid that disaster in the future, make sure to use a baking spray that contains a starch. I get mine from Williams Sonoma. Or, try buttering and flouring the pan. For this, simply use a square of softened butter and using your fingers, grease the inside. Then, add approximately ¼ cup all-purpose flour to the pan and rotate it around until the flour coats the butter. Dump any excess flour out. Use this method for a perfect bundt cake every time!
