This is a lovely little Bundt cake. I already have a bias towards Bundt cakes – so simple, and not fussy at all – but this one is small enough for a 6-cup bundt pan. It’s perfectly sized.
The cake is quick to make, so I whipped it up at the last minute the night before we left on a camping trip to Yosemite. It’s a good cake for camping or a picnic.
If you’re not a fan of malt, just leave it out. There’s plenty of flavor with the vanilla and a hint of Bourbon. The buttermilk makes for a moist crumb.
My only beef with the recipe is the glaze – it comes out way too thin, and I needed to add quite a bit more powdered sugar to get it to the right consistency. I suggest starting off with half of the milk at first, and thinning as needed.
