PB & J Mini Bundt Cake #BundtBakers


This is my second month participating in a baking group called Bundt Bakers. And I am already enamored with the bloggers and their creative baked goodies.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our home page.

This month's prompt was from Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm. She wrote: "November is National Peanut Butter month.  Being mindful of allergies I would like to open this up to all Nut Butters.  The Nut Butter can be added to the cake itself or used as a glaze or frosting."

Here's the line-up...

I decided to go with a childhood favorite: PB & J! Though I used jam instead of jelly because I had a jar that my mother-in-law sent me made with elderberries that they foraged. I made one mini bundt and then used the rest of the batter in cupcakes.

Ingredients

Cake
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (you can use whatever milk you want, I had coconut milk)
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
Glaze
  • 1/2 cup jelly/jam/preserves (I used some homemade elderberry jam)
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • 1 cup organic powdered sugar

 Procedure

Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your mini bundt pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Beat in the peanut butter until well-combined, then add in one egg at a time. Beat well between each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk.

Fold in the flour until just moistened. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and cupcake hollow.

Place in the oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. A toothpick inserted to the center of the cake should come out clean.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes before inverting and cooling completely on a wire rack. While the cake cools, make the glaze.

Glaze
Add jam and citrus juice to a medium sauce pan. Heat over low, slowly whisking until melted. Slowly whisk in the sugar, one third at a time until fully-combined.

Pour glaze over the cake. Serve immediately.

Next month the group will be back with red and green bundts - just in time for Christmas - with Rebekah of Making Miracles at the lead! Stay tuned...

  1. When my kids were little we used to sing "Peanut Butter and Jelly, that's what I like in my belly". As soon as I read this post I started singing it LOL.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams.

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
