Recipe Friday ~ Grandma’s BundtCake

I made this delicious cake following an old german recipe. The german name is ‘Rotkäppchen’s Gugelhupf’ – which means ‘Little Red Riding Hood’s Bundtcake’…and since the little one carried a cake in her basket, we call it ‘Grandma’s Bundtcake’.

Here’s what you need…
~4.4 oz (125-g) softened Butter, unsalted
~1/2 cup + 2-1/2 Tbsp. Sugar
~a pinch of salt
~3 eggs
~1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
~1-3/4 cup Flour
~2 tsp. Baking Powder
~4 – 6 Tbsp. Applejuice
~3/4 cup Raisins (wash in hot water, set on paper towels)
~2 -3 Apples (peeled and diced)
~Cooking Spray
~powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 360F (180C)
~Combine the softened butter with sugar and salt and beat until creamy (handmixer)

~Mix in the eggs, add the flour and baking powder – keep mixing. Add the Applejuice, then the cinnamon

~Fold in the raisins and the apples.

~Spray your Bundtpan and coat with sugar. Pour in the batter and bake for 55 – 60 minutes (toothpick test!)


When the cake is completely cooled, turn it out onto a wire rack.

Sieve on the powdered sugar. Done!

*One last word of advice – tell your loved ones that the tempting ‘chocolate chips’ are raisins! My daughter claims she has trust issues because of this cake!

I hope you enjoy the baking, the eating, and the Holidays!

Until next time
