Almond croquant bundt cake

Almond croquant bundt cake


As I already mentioned during the weekend, Christmas is most definitely the time for bundt cakes! Therefore I try to add as many dry cake recipes as I have time to make before Christmas. This almond croquant cake was made to celebrate my mum’s name day.


Almond croquant cake
 250 g margarine
 2,5 dl caster sugar
 4 eggs
 1 tsp vanilla sugar
 1,5 tsp baking powder
 250 g plain flour
 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
 1 dl milk
 150 g almond croquant


Whip together soft margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time while constantly mixing. Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and incorporate them into the batter with milk. Finally add in the almond croquant (unless you already added it with the flour) and stir until smooth.

Pour the batter into a greased and breadcrumbed bundt pan and bake in 175°C for about 50-60 minutes. The cake is ready when a skewer pressed into the cake comes out clean.

Turn over on a plate and leave to cool. Dry cakes are at their best during the following days unless they get eaten before that.
