“Bundt Cake Bliss”
1hr 35mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°; prepare a 12-cup Bundt pan using butter and flour; set aside.
  2. Combine cocoa and red food coloring in a bowl; let mixture stand.
  3. In another bowl, cream the shortening and sugar thoroughly; add the eggs and combine.
  4. Add in the buttermilk, salt, vanilla, and flour; beat thoroughly.
  5. Beat in the vinegar and baking soda by hand; pour the batter into the pan.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the cake springs back slightly when touched.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a wire rack or serving platter to cool thoroughly.
  8. Topping options: a dusting of powdered sugar, or your favorite cream cheese frosting or vanilla glaze.
  9. For Halloween: make real-looking blood for a gory touch—combine ½ cup corn syrup, 1 teaspoon red food coloring, and two drops blue food coloring; place in a glass container and shake vigorously; frost with vanilla frosting, then drizzle with fake blood, and add a butcher knife for effect; for the best appearance, use a light hand and practice caution because the mixture can stain.
