Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

  • recipe image cover





This Banana Bundt Cake is simply my banana muffin recipe baked in a special pan. I love a versatile recipe like this one that I can serve in different ways. I know the recipe works, I have a good idea of the ingredients I need and I can quickly check to confirm I have everything I need.

Gluten free baking always presents an extra challenge. If you want a taller, larger cake for a bigger crowd or a different presentation the recipe can be doubled. However, it may not be that simple. You might need to add an extra quarter of a teaspoon of xanthan gum to keep it together, and the baking time will need to be longer. The best advice is to actually write down what worked for you so you can repeat it.

Buying Bundt Pans

A Bundt pan is a great addition to your collection of baking pans and is especially helpful to gluten free bakers. A Bundt pan has a hole in the centre and ridges along the sides. This means there will be no worry about your cake being uncooked in the center.

Bundt pans are available in various sizes and I recommend you own one. You can make cakes, jellied desserts or salads, and even meatloaf in them. Many recipes will be written for a 9-inch or 10-inch Bundt pan. I don’t own a mini Bundt pan but when I see them I do think they are cute. If you love these pans and will use them then you should add one to your baking collection.

Is It Done?

After a Bundt cake is baked it is cooled right in the pan. After it has cooled use a narrow, thin spatula to loosen the sides of the cake from the pan before inverting it onto a platter. Baking the cake until done in the center ensures (or should I say increases the likelihood) that your cake will come out of the pan cleanly. Gluten free baked goods should be baked longer than the toothpick test. Use a kitchen timer, follow the recipe but trust what you think.

Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

There are many ways to make a nice presentation for a Bundt cake. You can completely cover it with cream cheese icing or you can drizzle a glaze along the top and allow it to drip down the sides. In this photo I used a generous amount of glaze but you can make it look the way you like it.

Let me know in the comments below how your Banana Bundt Cake turned out.

Make the banana cake batter according to the muffin recipe. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan.
Bake for 40-50 minutes until browned and starting to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cover with foil if the cake is brown on top but not quite cooked.
Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
Gently remove cake from pan and place on serving tray. Drizzle with chocolate glaze.
Melt chocolate and butter in small saucepan over low heat stirring until smooth.
Stir in cream. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Drizzle over the middle of the cake allowing glaze to drip down the sides.
