Halloween Bundt Cake

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.

Ingredients

  • 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!

Steps

  • 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

Assembly

  • 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!!
