I feel like all I need to do is reiterate the title of this beauty – Coffee & orange cardamom Bundt cake – to sell it. It’s moist, airy, and decadent. Oh and it’s better with icing.
The coffee & orange cardamom Bundt cake is the most amazing tea cake there is. It is so delicious that it’s almost hard to not just write, “yummy, yummy, yummy!”, and leave it there. I love light and flavorful desserts, and this definitely fits the bill. You’d assume that it would be a dense dessert given the number of heavy flavors, but on the contrary, it’s actually quite light and airy. The self raising flour and the proportions of the other ingredients gives this much more of a pound cake or sponge cake texture. This cake ends up being spongy, flavorful, and decadent. Without being heavy or saccharine.
Personally, I like making mini coffee & orange cardamom Bundt cakes because they’re a pretty and perfect mini cake to serve iced or not. Not to mention, rarely does someone say, “No thank you, no cake for me”. I like to say even my non-cake eating friends love this one. And it’s convenient that it’s easy to make. If you do go for the mini Bundt, keep in mind that your baking time will change to approximately 20 minutes per batch, and you will have enough batter for 2 batches, or 12 cakes. Also, I can’t recommend the Nordic Ware Bundtlette pan enough! All of their pans are just beautiful and help you achieve the perfect bake each time. Obviously, any Bundt pan will do the trick. And if you’re not in the mood for a mini, throw it in your standard Bundt pan and it’ll be just as fabulous.
There’s no grand scale effort needed here. And try not to stress out about how to alternate the batter to get the perfect marble swirl. Just alternate the color into 2 blocks of each, give it a small swirl and call it good. Baking a swirl is a forgiving process. Just don’t get overly zealous and over swirl it to death. I’m sure I could go on, but the truth is, I don’t want to. Nash fed Titan lamb ragu and lets just say it’s doesn’t seem to be suiting his rather delicate disposition.
