An American style carrot cake in a baked in bundt tin. I actually like this type of carrot, as it’s lighter on the frosting as it’s more of a drizzle and love seeing the carrot fleck in the cake.

A bundt cake is a cake baked in a Bundt Pan shaping it into a ring shape, the shape is inspired by a traditional European cake known as Gugelhugf. A company Nordic Ware has named it the “Bundt” like Coca-Cola have trade marked cola as “coke”.

The good thing about baking a cake in a bundt tin is that it doesn’t take as long to bake, and there is no fear of the centre of the cake not being baked properly.
