What is this Easy and Healthy Bundt Cake?
Not sure if you know but I am originally from Czech Republic, and Bundt cake was my childhood favourite treat!
The cake is made in the special form of the same name, which gives the cake a typical ring like shape with a hole in the middle.
Bundt cake can be also marbled - with a light and dark batter using cocoa or cacao powder. Or you can make it with nuts and raisins like I did in this easy and healthy Bundt cake recipe.
- Oats. I opted for porridge/rolled oats. To make is gluten-free get the certified gluten free version.
- Coconut Oil. Any oil is fine, I just love coconut oil the most
- Yoghurt. You can use any kind you have on hand. I used unsweetened soya, which is a great option for those who need this to be a dairy-free healthy bundt cake.
- Flaxseed eggs. That's basically 3 tablespoons of ground flax seeds mixed with 9 tablespoons of water. You can use normal eggs too.
- Date Syrup. To keep things healthy I chose to naturally sweeten this cake with date syrup but you can use any other liquid sweetener.
- Apple puree. This is to help things to stick together. You can use shop bought puree too. The best is baby puree as there are no sugars added..
- Nuts and Dried Fruits. I love Snacking Essentials range, but if you can't get your hands on them, go for any other.
BUNDT CAKE TOPPINGS
While you can eat this cake triumphantly just as is, here are a few ideas of what you can use to top it:
- Ice Cream. Top this cake with a scoop of my ice cream
- More Chocolate. If you’re serving this to a real chocolate lover, top the cake with melted raw and sprinkle with crushed nuts
- Whipped Cream. Add a dollop (or two!) of my coconut whipped cream for extreme decadence.
- Caramel Sauce. Add a drizzle of my caramel sauce on top with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. YES!
And if you are considering buying some new Bundt cake form, you can find a few in here.
