Make this German Chocolate Bundt Cake! With a gooey coconut, pecan and caramel frosting that complements this subtle chocolate flavoured cake.
Thank you for stopping by today, I’m really excited to have you here! I’ve partnered up with Nordic Ware to share a delicious Bundt cake recipe baked in one of their amazing Bundt pans.
I have been a BIG fan of Nordic Ware since I had a kitchen of my own. They’re the pans I choose over any other when I’m in the market for something new. I actually can’t resist their Bundt pans, and have amassed quite a collection over the years…but seriously, there are so many beautiful pans…you can see some of the Bundt cakes I’ve made with them here. I also really love the Nordic Ware baking sheets for cookies and Sheetpan Suppers.
So when I was asked to participate in a holiday program with Nordic Ware, I couldn’t say no. Nordic Ware is a Minnesota made, family owned company, that was founded in 1946 by the husband and wife team, Dotty and Dave. Nordic Ware has been a major part of the heritage and history of Minnesota since that time, and this holiday season they have partnered with the Minnesota Historical Society and Mill City Museum, to celebrate their Scandinavian roots and values in kitchenware. And what better way to do that than to share delicious recipes made in their kitchenware and Bundt pans!
All About the Bundt Pan
For the holiday season I made a German Chocolate Bundt using the Nordic Ware Copper Cast Bundt. The recipe I made is from the recipe book, Bundt Cake Bliss: Delicious Desserts from Midwest Kitchens by Susanna Short, which was published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press. A book full of Bundt cake recipes?! Yes. Please.
This book is loaded with recipes to try…from vintage favourites like Quick Orange Kiss and Tunnel of Fudge to fanciful finds like Green Chili Cornbread and Mexican Hot Chocolate Mini Bundts. This recipe book features just about every delectable Bundt baked by the Midwest’s own since the handy pan burst into the baking scene in the 1960s! So good.
As I was flipping through the pages of this book, I came upon this German Chocolate Bundt, and I knew right away this was the cake I was going to make. I have such a fondness for German Chocolate cake. I remember my Mom making it sometimes for my birthday when I was little. I loved it then, and I love it now.
What I love most about German Chocolate Cake is the gooey coconut, pecan and caramel frosting. I could eat it by the spoonful.
Then smother that frosting all over a homemade chocolate cake, you have dessert heaven.
This German Chocolate Bundt cake would be a perfect cake for the holiday season!
Have a delicious day!
