This is the kind of cake you eat when it’s technically Summer. Key word: technically.

But since it won’t stop snowing, and the thermometer won’t move past 35 F, we decided that a Cherry Bundt Cake should definitely be this month’s #Bundtamonth theme.

Well, technically, it wasn’t me that decided. It was our beautiful #Bundtamonth hostesses with the mostesses, Lora from Cake Duchess and Anuradha from Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake. 

On a side note:

Here’s how you can be a part of Bundt-a-Month:

Back to the cake.

At first I wanted to do a chocolate and cherry cake, but I already have that cake on here; Quick Cherry and Chocolate Cake.  My next option was yogurt. Not sure why yogurt, but that’s what popped in my head – yogurt and cherries.

After a scan or two of my fridge and pantry, I found a jar of maraschino cherries, a cup of yogurt, and some brown sugar… I was ready to whip up this cake. Then, because I just wasn’t feelin’ my bundt pan, I decided to go with some minis. I think that was a great decision. I stuffed my face with 2 of them, and when I reached for the 3rd, my daughter reminded me that I already had 2…

The cherries and yogurt pair beautifully in this delicate cake. The yogurt helps keep the cake moist, while the maraschino cherries add a subtle sweet flavor.

I’ll tell you what. If you have some maraschino cherries, get ready and bake this Cherry Bundt Cake. It’s moist, sweet, soft, and pillowy!

Also, you might want to hide a couple of cakes for later … it kinda sucks when a 3-year old tells you that you ate too much cake.

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The bundt cakes should be baked at 350˚F.
      I’m sorry for the missing step, though. I shared this recipe exactly 7 years ago. In the meantime, I have gone through several different recipe plugins, website updates, redesigns, and so forth; during those updates and processes, some information and recipes just didn’t transfer completely. Again, my apologies, and thank you for pointing it out.

    I love mini bundt. One of these days I WILL join in, bundtamonth always looks so fun.

    these sound SO GOOD – very unique!

  2. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies)

    I love mini bunts–the finished product is always so pretty. Hope you get some warmer weather soon!

  3. tanja@tanjascookingcorner

    Mini-bundts are always so cute, and yours look absolutely beautiful, Kate! I have no mini bundt pans yet, only a normal one, and I really need to buy them very soon 🙂 Love your photography!

    I have always had maraschino cherries in the refrigerator or cupboard until we moved to Dubai. They are most difficult to find here and I don’t know why! I finally brought two jars back from the States last week so I am in business! What beautiful little Bundts you have created! And that third cake? Is why three-year-old have earlier bedtimes than mothers.

  5. Faith

    You always have the prettiest desserts, Kate!! These little treats are absolutely gorgeous and this sounds like such a fun event!

  6. Laura Dembowski (@piesandplots)

    Love these mini bundts! So pretty! I was wondering what kind of cherries you’d use since they aren’t quite in season yet. Though assuming winter actually decides to end, it won’t be long until it’s cherry season.

  7. The Ninja Baker

    Your mini Bundts are beauties, Katerina! Love the use of brown sugar in the cake.

    P.s. On my last trip to Japan I purchased very similar looking mini Bundt pans…You’ve made me want to bake in them tonight =)

  8. Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen

    Kate, love that you made your Cherry Bundt Cakes minis! I adore my mini Bundt pans from Nordicware. This is the pan we bakers used to make “baked doughnuts” before doughnut pans hit the market! Love your photography here! xo

  9. Valerie

    Seriously, what it up with the weather?
    I think I’d need two of these splendid bundtlette cakes too (maybe three…I don’t have kids). 😀

  10. Anne@FromMySweetHeart

    Oh Kate…these cakes are just beautiful. Simple and pretty and your photography is just stunning! : )

    I own a full-sized bundt pan inherited from my mom, though it has been relegated to the basement, as previous baking attempts in it have all been met with failure due to underbaked centers while the sides/tops started to burn.

    Maybe it was just the recipes I tried (ie medivnyk or Ukrainian honey cake) but I’m willing to give it another try with all the tempting cherry cake recipes on offer. I recently made a batch of cherry preserve and almond filled rugelach and the cherry flavour has inspired me to eat all of the rugelach myself and NOT give them all away which I have been doing in the past.

  12. Taking On Magazines

    Gorgeous! I’m glad you didn’t go with chocolate and cherries. This looks much more delicious to me. 🙂 And, thanks for the heads-up. I’ll be sure to make and eat these while Dudette’s at school.

  13. Denise Browning@From Brazil To You

    Kate: Your lovely mini bundt cakes full of cherries are making me drool like a baby — literally!! The first picture is nothing than impressive. I am pinning it now.

  14. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen

    Going the mini bundt way was a good call. They look awfully cute Kate! Many of us choose yogurt, is it the nicer weather? Beautiful cakes, and I love that you used brown sugar.

  15. Averie @Averie Cooks

    I absolutely love that they’re mini! I have 1 mini bundt pan..I really should have bought a pair..duh! I also love maraschino cherries..and they’re perfect in this cake!

  16. Ramona

    Great use of your fridge ingredients. It’s cold where I live too.. I’m still posting soup recipes, like today. 🙂
