"It's a cake!" Name that movie!...
It's from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which happens to be one of my favorite movies. In the movie the Greek family is trying to understand what a bundt cake is. All I know is that once you try one you will always remember it. Bundt cakes are a popular sweet to make during the holidays. Today, I have a yummy recipe to share with you that you can make the day before your party so that you are stress free and you can enjoy every moment of your gathering.
You can't go wrong with toffee and caramel, and this cake recipe has both. Mmm! It's a moist cake, especially with the caramel, and use can use the extra caramel drizzle for apple slices.
Toffee Caramel Bundt Cake (adapted from Lady Behind the Curtain)
- Non-stick cooking spray with flour
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 5 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 6 oz. toffee pieces (about ¾ bag of Heath chips)
- ½ cup pecans bits
- Caramel Drizzle (see below)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup bundt pan with non-stick spray with flour.
In a medium bowl, wisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Measure out milk in a liquid measuring cup and then add the vanilla to the same cup. Alternate mixing in flour and milk, until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.
Fold in toffee chips and pecans by hand with a spatula until distributed through batter. Spoon batter into the prepared bundt pan.
Bake for about 75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cover top of cake with foil to prevent excess browning if necessary
Remove from oven and cool the cake in the pan for 20 minutes, then carefully invert the pan onto a wire and allow the cake to cool completely.
After the cake has cooled, make the caramel drizzle below.
