Cinnamon Ripple Sweet Potato Bundt - Day #4 - I Like Big Bundts

Cinnamon Ripple Sweet Potato Bundt - I Like Big Bundts

It's Day 4 of my Bundt crusade with a Cinnamon Ripple Sweet Potato Bundt. And today, it's all about Paula. No, not the self-medicating former American Idol/Lakers Girl Paula, but Paula Deen.

Paula is always entertaining. I probably won't make most of her food, but I do like her sweet demeanor and I just love her sons. They are too cute, and really devoted to their mama.

Just remember:
This Bundt has VEGETABLES in it. And the walnuts? A superfood.

Just forget:
This Bundt is from Paula Deen so bring out the butter and sour cream!

Paula suggests pecans, but I used chopped walnuts in the yummy middle layer. It has brown sugar, nuts and cinnamon. The batter comes together quickly and gets layers between the Cinnamon Ripple. Easy peasy, no?

Paula has a rum glaze, but I drizzled powered sugar and milk glaze.

This is a Big Bundt. Really, did you expect anything less from Paula?! :) Make sure you are using a 12 or 14-cup Bundt pan. It is a moist cake with a fun, really sweet layer in the center. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea or just a fork.

I've been getting question about the consumption of my Bundt adventure :) I've been passing them around at my and nearby libraries, family, friends and tomorrow, a neighbor. I hope you make and share a Bundt!

See you back here tomorrow and every day from now til National Bundt Day (November 15th) for another Bundt! - mary the food librarian

I love all of your bundt cakes. How am I ever going to make them all?

This looks delicious. I love all the bundt cakes. I'm going to have to make a bunch of these.

That looks good! I too have wondered where all the bundts are going, or whether you'd been baking them and had a stockpile of pictures hehe

I love how Paula goes BIG! I've yet to make one of her recipes that hasn't worked out or been fabulous!

Your bundt looks great! :)

I don't care much for Paula's food but I do like her desserts. This is a great lookin bundt!

I've got a technical question. What's your drizzling technique? I absolutely love the icing effect you get on these bundts!

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Hilary,
I don't know if I have an exact technique, but I'll try to photograph it one of these days (when I can have someone help me). I make the glaze a little thick, but not too thick (yes, it's very technical... ;) and use a regular spoon to scoop some up. Then I let a little bit drip down the one the cake and lightly go back and forth. I always make the glaze a little thicker than you think it should be, because gravity pulls it down a bit. I think this explanation is probably as thick as mud...so I'll take some photos! - mary

This is exciting in a retro sort of way. i love that you made a SP version and it sounds so good. I may just have to come back and see what's next. I have a family fav in my arsenal. Just a simple buttermilk and so tasty/easy. This is fun! Thanks Mary
PS Is everyone weighing in to keep track? he he

Yum, I love that so far your bundts are cinnamon heavy! One of my favorite baking smells.

Steph said... [Reply to comment]

I love Paula too, but I don't think I've ever made any of her recipes because her use of butter scares me! Your bundt looks amazing, as usual. Btw, I think your 30 days of bundts is really exciting!!

Katrina said... [Reply to comment]

Ahhh, I'm late getting to the big bundt party! Just remember, the last day (nov. 15) is my birthday. I like banana bundts and chocolate bundts and well, really any kind. Well, not onion bundts. I hate onions!
;)
This sounds great and I love Paula (and her sons), too!

I'm going to dust off the bundt pan now!! Any of Paula's recipes are a welcome treat in my kitchen!

Another great bundt!

I made the Pumpkin Spice Bundt with Buttermilk Icing and brought it into work. Everybody loved it! Thanks for the great idea, FL!

ok, that comment from Book Boor made me laugh out loud. that's one sweet bundt...should you need help in the bundt-consumption department, i'm happy to help! :)

Tracey said... [Reply to comment]

Oooh, sweet potatoes in a bundt? Love the idea! It looks delicious!

Bec said... [Reply to comment]

Now for my technical question - what are your tips for greasing the pan and getting the cake out in one piece?

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Bec, I'm a Pam or Baker Joy (the stuff with flour) sprayer with the basic bundt pan. I can't handle the greasing because I never have time. My Nordic Ware bundt is also non-stick so that helps too.

However, on the patterned ones (like Rose or Tree Bundt), then I do use shortening and flour. I brush the shortening on, sprinkle flour or cocoa then tap it out. - mary

Wow you wouldn't believe how excited I am that you're making tons of bundt cakes! I like big bundts too, so it's so awesome that you are flooding your blog with one of my favorite cakes! :D

This is an absolutely gorgeous looking bundt cake ... you want to go out for a date?? Love the ripples of icing flowing down, makes such a pretty picture overall.

emiglia said... [Reply to comment]

This looks incredible! I love the idea of sweet potato in a baked good... now I just need someone to foist this on so I can bake it!

Linda said... [Reply to comment]

You are causing the delinquency of my diet Mary! I have sweet potatoes sitting on my counter for the purpose of a healthy meal, but it looks like I'll be using them for this bundt. That bundt looks delicious!
