How To Make Vanilla Bundt Cake

Lighten up your day with this classic vanilla Bundt cake with a rich taste and scrumptiously buttery crumb, topped with an easy-to-prepare vanilla glaze.

Cooking: 50 minutes
Total: 1 hour 5 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 3sticksbutter,unsalted, at room temperature
  • cupssugar,granulated
  • 2tspbaking powder

  • tspsalt
  • 2tspvanilla extract
  • ¼tspalmond extract,optional

  • 6largeeggs,at room temperature
  • 3cupsall-purpose flour
  • ¾cupwhole milk

For Glaze:

  • 1cupconfectioners’ sugar
  • 3tbspwhole milk
  • 1tspvanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Place the oven rack in the middle of the oven.

  3. Grease a 10 to 12-cup Bundt cake pan using a non-stick baking spray or shortening. Flour the pan, and tap the excess flour. Set aside.

  4. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.

  5. Add the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add vanilla extract, almond extract, and sour cream, mixing until combined.

  6. With the mixer running on medium speed, add 2 eggs and beat until combined.

  7. Add ⅓ cup of flour and beat until combined.

  8. Repeat previous steps. Add 2 more eggs, followed by ⅓ cup of flour, and the remaining 2 eggs, and another ⅓ cup of flour.

  9. Gently beat in half of the milk, followed by half of the remaining flour, then the remaining milk. Turn off the mixer, and stir in the remaining flour.

  10. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula. Beat the batter on medium-high speed for 20 to 30 seconds until smooth.

  11. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.

  12. Bake the cake for 50 to 60 minutes until it’s starting to brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  13. If the cake appears to be browning too quickly, tent it with foil for the final 15 minutes of baking.

  14. Remove the cake from the oven, and place it onto a cooling rack. After 10-20 minutes, invert the cake onto a plate, and allow it to cool completely.

  15. Let the cake cool completely before glazing.

To Glaze:

  1. Add all the glaze ingredients to a medium bowl and stir to combine until smooth without lumps. If the mixture is too thin, add more confectioners sugar, ¼ cup at a time. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  2. Spread the glaze over the cooled cake. Let it settle.

  3. Slice and serve.

To Store:

  1. Store the leftover cake, well-wrapped, at room temperature for 2 to 3 days. Freeze for longer storage.
