A NOTE FROM KATE: WHAT’S COOKING

BY Kate Hudson

I can’t resist Magnolia Bakery’s legendary banana pudding and amazing Bundt Cake. This recipe is perfect for a bunny-shaped Easter Cake, especially because the club soda makes it so light and fluffy!

Bunny Bundt Cakes

Ingredients

  • 345 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 575 g sugar
  •  5 large eggs, at room temperature
  •  300 g all-purpose flour
  • 180 ml carbonated water
  •  2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  •  1 1/2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease and lightly flour a bunny-shaped Bundt pan.
  3. In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Add the flour in thirds, alternating with the carbonated water, beating after each addition until smooth.
  6. Add the vanilla extract and the lemon zest and mix well.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 70-80 minutes until golden brown or a cake tester inserted into centre of cake comes out clean.
  8. Let cake cool in pan for 20 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

And, here’s a recipe for the adults!
