Moist and cakey almond bundt cake is perfect for Easter or any other holiday!
While Easter will be here in 10 days I am browsing through recipes and reminding myself what we ate on Easter. The most popular dessert that we made and still making is bundt cake. Sometimes, we baked small bundt cake. So we could put it in our blessing baskets. They were moist, delicious and perfect for brunch. We still have this tradition but I love reminding myself how was it when I was little.
My bundt cake is large. I baked it in 9 inch bundt cake pan. However, the most important fact about my almond bundt cake is that it doesn’t consist only flour. Half the all-purpose flour is substituted with almond flour. That’s why this bundt cake is moist and stays fresh very long.
Obviously, the main flavor are almonds. I even decorated my dessert with shivered almonds to add more crunchiness to the cake. I also added vanilla extract so my cake had a little hint of vanilla. I am even planning to buy almond extract to make my cakes more flavorful and bake even more.
So if you are looking for new recipes for Easter, just make this almond bundt cake. Your guests will love it and they will be asking for more. Definitely, I think it is perfect for an Easter brunch or as a dessert after dinner. Or you can bake on any other holiday! I have more recipes for Easter and they will be on the blog next week.
