Less than 20 days until Halloween! This szn we have been loading up on psychological thrillers, 80’s horror films, and pumpkin-spice-everything. We’ve also been V busy testing new recipes, to help you make this October 31st EXTRA festive, to make up for the lost Halloween parades, bashes, and Over-Priced-Open-Bar events no longer happening due to COVID :/
This Halloween Bundt Cake is the perfect treat to make with your friends, family, OR when you’re spending a cozy night in, by yourself, with a bottle of ‘secco.
We made our bundt from scratch (bc unemployed + it’s raining today) BUT if you want to simplify, we totally support Betty Crock White Cake Mix.
- 3 sticks softened butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp butter extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 6 TBS cornstarch
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- Orange, purple, and neon green food coloring
- Sprinkles, M&Ms, colored frosting, and mini chocolate chips for decorating… get creative!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bundt pan with cooking spray
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt; set aside
- In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix the butter and sugar; once the butter and sugar is well combined and fluffy, add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each
- Add the vanilla and butter extracts to the mixture and mix until combined
- Slowly add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined; Then slowly add the milk, mixing until it is completely incorporated
- Add the remainder of the dry ingredients; mix until JUST combined
- Divide the batter into 3 separate bowls; to each bowl, add a different food coloring (TIP: Add more food coloring than you think… something about when it bakes, it looks much better)
- Using 3 separate spoons, begin spooning in large globs of batter in a ring around the bundt cake. Once you have made your way around the ring, do the same thing on top. Repeat until all batter is used
- Bake the cake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean; allow to cool completely before you flip to decorate – and have fun!!
