I’m in Love with this Almond Bundt Cake.
It’s so simple and such an easy cake to make–and it turns out soft and fluffy every time.
I’m in Love with this Almond Bundt Cake
My mom used to make this Almond Bundt Cake when I was a kid.
For some reason, she saved it for like church suppers and cake sales, when I remember just getting a tiny taste of the batter or maybe one slice, shared with my brother.
After making it this weekend, I know why.
I literally could have sat down and eaten this entire Almond Bundt Cake myself.
Seriously, it’s that good.
Like, forget about cooking dinner.
Forget about fixing some lunch.
Dude, just skip any breakfast plans you’ve made.
You can just have a slice (or two) of cake for every meal until this cake is completely gone.
Mom was not making it, because it’s all we would have eaten–it’s so freaking good. LOL!
And, the best (or worst) part is that it’s SO EASY, too!
Just slap some ingredients in the mixer, then dump them all in the bundt cake pan.
Once it’s goldeny-brown, you pull it out (and always check it with a toothpick, because looks can be deceiving and that toothpick has to be clean).
Then cool and ice that Almond Bundt Cake while your tastebuds literally drool over themselves in a mess of excitement.
Seriously, I almost couldn’t get the almonds on top before the kids were both in the kitchen begging for a bite.
I mean, I get EXACTLY why my mom only made this for special occasions when I was a kid.
Kids have no self-control.
And my brother and I would have been face-first into this Almond Bundt Cake if we had our way.
I’m just super sad that I hadn’t remembered this recipe from my childhood before now!
I’ve missed out on so many special events! LOL!
But, I’ve vowed not to do this to my kids.
We’re going to enjoy this Almond Bundt Cake again, and not just for special occasions–it’ll become a regular in our dessert rotation.
Sorry, mom, I still have no self-control…
