I never knew that there was a holiday dedicated to any thing food related until I started Cake Duchess. Every day on Twitter or Facebook I will catch the national holiday of something to do with something delicious.
I think you may forgive me once you are hypnotized by this bundt’s rich caramel glaze.The sticky caramel drips and oozes off the bundts’ curvy sides beckoning you to take a bite. It’s too late to run and hide; you’re mesmerized by its spell.
How can you be a part of it?
Anuradha and I will pick an ingredient and announce it the first week of every month. All you Bundt loving bakers need to do is use your imagination on how you’d like to incorporate it and bake a Bundt – mini Bundt or large Bundt – and link it up to our blogs throughout the month. It’s that simple!
a little about this bundt cake:
Vanilla Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze
For the cake:
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup sugar
13.5 ounce coconut milk
3/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (or lime juice)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter *I used Earth Balance soy free margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat a bundt pan with non-stick baking spray (or you can butter and flour the pan-I prefer baking spray).
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt; set aside. In another bowl, whisk together oil, apple sauce, sugar, lemon juice and the vanilla extract. Add flour mixture and coconut milk alternately starting and ending with flour mixture. Using a spatula, scrape the sides of the bowl and incorporate all the batter. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 1/2 on hour at 350 F then lower the heat to 325 F and bake for about another 15-20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cool slightly before removing to a rack to cool completely.
When cake is just about ready, make the glaze.
In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes. Add the corn syrup, and vanilla and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour hot glaze over cooled cake. PS: I had about a cup of the caramel glaze leftover. I will be using it another recipe soon-it won’t go to waste. 😉
happy baking xo
