Gluten Free Marble Bundt Cake – a moist vanilla cake with a swirl of chocolatey goodness.
I have a special place in my heart for “classic cakes”. I remember my Mom clipping recipes from newspapers and magazines, storing them in her little red recipe binder, or her overflowing recipe box. In amongst those recipes for salads made using Jello, were recipes for cakes like poke cakes, dump cakes, and Bundt cakes. When I was growing up, there were three things that every Saturday consisted of. Cleaning house, having a bath in the evening so you were clean for Church the next day, and Mom baking some sort of cake, just in case company stopped in unannounced on Sunday afternoon. Flipping through her stack of clipped recipes, she would find a cake to bake. It always seemed extra special when it was a Bundt cake.
I’ve had this Marble Bundt Cake on my mind for a while already. I finally decided to tackle it, and after a few tries, got the exact result I was hoping for. A dense, moist vanilla cake with a beautiful, sweet, chocolate swirl throughout. You could drizzle it with chocolate glaze, but I decided to keep things simple and just dusted it with a little confectioners’ sugar. A slice of cake served with a little dollop of sweetened whipped cream is so simple, yet special at the same time.
I wonder what other classic cakes I can re-create to be gluten free. Any suggestions?
