Healthy Bundt Cake Recipes
Bundt pans come in varying designs and sizes. Feel free to alter the baking times on these recipes to fit a smaller or larger pan. Miniature bundt cakes are ideal for gift giving when wrapped individually in celophane.

A homey comfort classic made special with a dusting of sugar and a hidden filling of apples and nuts.
Buttermilk Bundt Cakes
Here we offer three garnishing options for these adorable, delicious cakes: Simply dust with powdered sugar, pipe a bit of glaze over the top, or completely dunk the cakes for a heavier coating.

Perfect for brunch, this light cake features sweet berries and a lemony glaze. Garnish with ribbons of lemon rind and fresh blueberries.
Decadent Double-Chocolate Bundt Cake
"The cake has a delicate chocolate flavor, so it's not overpowering," said recipe developer Barb Combs. "I enjoy the special glaze the most. Although I wrote the recipe to say 'cool completely,' the cake tastes delicious served slightly warm about a half hour after you have inverted it from the pan."
Chocolate Chip Irish Cream Pound Cake
"This cake is even better on the second day," said reader and recipe developer Anna Ginsberg.
Orange Mini Bundt Cakes
Baked in mini Bundt pans (about $30 at most kitchen specialty stores and home emporiums), these cakes make delicious holiday gifts. You can bake the cake in a standard 12-cup Bundt pan for one hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Chocolate Bundt Cake
Unsweetened natural cocoa and espresso granules give our Chocolate Bundt Cake a rich, dark flavor.
Pound Cake with Lemon-Basil Glaze
Make the cake ahead, and freeze it for up to two weeks. Thaw in the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature before glazing. Follow the directions for applying the glaze in two steps to allow it to permeate the cake more thoroughly. A fresh basil sprig is a lovely garnish.
Double-Banana Pound Cake
For banana lovers: This cake packs a double punch of banana with the fruit and liqueur. The banana liqueur is a must; it gives the cake a sweet, rich banana flavor.
Orange Cardamom Cake
A bright citrus glaze, drizzled on top of the warm cake, pools at the bottom of the plate, making every bite—from the first to the last—a delicious treat.
Glazed Lemon Buttermilk Cake
This cake is great with a cup of morning coffee or mixed berries and a scoop of sorbet for dessert. Use a whole teaspoon of lemon extract for more intense lemon flavor.

The moist cake is enhanced by the hidden surprise of crunchy hazelnuts and chocolate-hazelnut spread. Bake this cake up to a month ahead, and freeze; thaw at room temperature.
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
When you're testing the chocolate zucchini cake for doneness, insert the wooden pick in several different places. You may hit a melted chocolate, which might make you think the cake isn't done.
