Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake with Vanilla Glaze and Strawberries - I Like Big Bundts 2011
Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake with Vanilla Glaze and Strawberries 
I Like Big Bundts - Day #19

TGIF!! Really, this week was epic long! Glad it's Friday!! And it's also Day #19 of I Like Big Bundts! I'm posting 30 bundts cakes in 30 days...all leading up to National Bundt Day on November 15th. I seriously love the Bundt cake! I love cake and don't care for frosting so the bundt is the perfect ratio of cake to frosting. I hope to inspire you to make a bundt for your friends, family, and random folks on the street.

I made this vanilla bean bundt in the Heritage Bundt...definitely one of my favorite bundt pans. A vanilla glaze covers the cake and it's served with a side of strawberries. I'm lucky to live in Los Angeles and can still find fresh strawberries in local farmer's market.

I used vanilla paste instead of vanilla beans. Have you used vanilla paste? One of my favorite things in the kitchen because it is less expensive than vanilla beans and gives you all the seeds of the beans. This paste is incredible on a bit of ice cream...just sayin'.

Lovely. This is a particularly pretty one. I will be sad when bundt month is over and I can't check this every morning.

Okay, so this year you're 18/19 for bundt cakes that I would make RIGHT NOW (on one of them I'd have to replace or leave off the coffee glaze, but that' minor). That's amazing. Keep up the good work. I also love bundts and am planning on making your chocolate cinnamon bundt this weekend.

Your cake is amazing. I have the same Bundt, but I have problems with it: the batter sticks to the baking mould sometimes. Do you think it is necessary to do something special in order to avoid it?

@Anonymous Eliabel, I spray my pans generously with Pam with Flour or Baker's Joy spray. The added flour to the spray makes it better than regular Pam. Or, you can butter and flour the pan generously. I think it is better to have more spray than a stuck cake! Also, be sure to remove the pan at the suggested time. Hope this helps. - mary
