Nutty Upside Down Cake#BundtBakers

Bundt Bakers is celebrating its 5th year anniversary, our Host and founder of this group Stacy Livingston Rushton asked us to make "Nutty Bundts".  Thank you Stacy for making this group, I am happy to be a part of  Bundt Bakers. 
Here is my Nutty Upside Down Cake, which is full of nuts on the inside and with nutty crunch from outside.
I reduced the sugar for the cake by ¼ cup, since I do not like very sweet cakes and there was sugar in the base too. My friends loved this cake, but, my hubby who is a sweet lover, promptly commented that this cake requires a little more sweetness. 
So increase the sugar by ¼ cup if you want it sweeter, like my hubby.
A  10 inch ring pan is perfect for this batter, since I used an 8 inch bundt pan , had batter remaining made 6 cupcakes, without the crunch.

For Base 
75 Grams Butter
½ Cup Brown Sugar
½ Cup Silvered Almonds
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
¼ Cup Chopped Pistachios
¼ Cup Silvered Cashewnuts
For Cake200 Grams Butter - I used salted
1 Cup Sugar

4 Large Eggs
1/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
1½ Cup All Purpose Flour
1½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda
¾ Cup Buttermilk

For Base
Mix the nuts in a bowl, reserve 1/4 of it for the cake batter. 
In a bundt pan place the butter and heat till it melts then add the   sugar  spread it well.
Sprinkle nuts evenly at the base and sides. Keep aside.

For Cake Batter
Sieve together flour, baking powder, soda and cocoa powder, keep aside. In half of the flour mix add the reserved nuts. 
Beat Butter and sugar till fluffy add essence and eggs, one  at a time till all the eggs are incorporated.  Now fold in flour alternating with butter milk, add the nuts flour and mix it lightly.  
Pour this batter  in the prepared tin and evenly spread it.
 Bake in a preheated for 45 minutes . After you take it from the oven let it cool for 5 for 7 minutes, then immediately turn it upside down. 
I Overturned this cake after an hour since, had to attend mass and the result was that all the base / crunch did not come out, the bottom which had cooled got stuck. 
This I, scraped with spoon and topped it for the cupcakes.
This cake was so soft and nutty, you will love it.

Dream White Cake#BundtBakers

This cake is soft, delicate and beautiful. This is my hubby's birthday cake. He was so delighted to see this cake.

For the Cake  

1.1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Cornflour 

3/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Powder 
 1/4 Teaspoon  Salt 
1/2 Tablespoon Baking powder 
113 Grams Unsalted butter
1 Cup Caster Sugar 

1/2 Cup Milk  
3 Egg Whites at room temperature

For Butter Cream

100 Grams Unsalted white butter, at room temperature 
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla powder 
A Pinch of Salt

3 - 3.1/2 Cups Icing sugar 
1 Tablespoon or more Milk


Seperate the eggwhites into a big bowl.
In a sauce pan heat butter and milk till the butter just melts.

Grease a 6.1/2 inch loose bottom bundt pan.
Preheat the oven to 170°C.
For the Cake

Whisk the egg whites till they start  to double in volume and  become stiff. Gradually add the sugar and beat it till the mixture turns white and silky.
In an other bowl sieve all purpose flour, corn flour, vanilla powder, baking powder and salt together. 
To this add hotmilk and butter mixture and  mix it well. 
To this add egg white mixture in parts and fold in using a spatula. 
Do not overmix.
Pour  the batter into the bundt pan  and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. 
Once baked  then transfer it onto a cooling rack. Cool it completely. Then remove it from the pan.  Keep it overnight to cool. 
When cooled cut  the brown top of the cake. Slice into two parts.
For butter cream frosting
The butter should be at room temperature and completely soft.
Combine the butter, vanilla and salt in a large bowl using a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Add the sieved icing  sugar 
1/2 cup at a time.

Beat till the mixture gets smooth and fluffy. If it gets a little thick only then add a little milk  to get the right consistency. In case it gets liquidy, add more icing sugar.

To Assemble the Cake

Place one layer of the cake on a cake stand. Scoop in as much buttercream as you desire on it and spread it evenly using a spatula. Place the other layer over it. Now scoop in some more buttercream on top and spread it.
To get a good finish on top. Spread a thin layer of buttercream and place the cake in the fridge for 15 minutes. This ensures that the buttercream layer firm's up. This will help to spread the last layer easily and evenly. Spread one more layer of buttercream and refrigerate again.
Place your spatula in hot water. Remove the cake from fridge and smoothen the top using the spatula dipped in hot water. Wipe the spatula before smoothing. This will give a smooth finish to the cream. 
Here the Dream White Cake is ready.
Slice it and enjoy with family and friends.
