I’m not a food blogger, nor am I a food photographer, but last night I baked a thing of beauty. The reason the picture looks good? 5:00 light through my front door and the fact that it’s a bundt cake. The best thing about bundt cakes? They make you look good. This is the easiest recipe on the planet, and my block party attendees thought I had the skills of Martha Stewart

This is a Danish Bundt Cake recipe that I stole from my mother in law. I love it because it’s such an easy bundt cake recipe. Seriously, you just dump everything in, mix, and bake.

I make this cake on the first day of school every year. This bundt cake makes your house smell amazing, and I love that it’s the first thing they smell when they walk through the door on the first day of school. Bonus? The cake is covered in a cinnamon sugar that gives the outer edge just the perfect amount of crisp. The sour cream and pudding in the recipe keeps the inside of the cake perfectly moist. Seriously a family favorite!

Danish Bundt Cake Recipe

  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 small package vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • cinnamon sugar

Danish Bundt Cake Instructions

1. Mix everything together (don’t over-mix). 

2. Spray pan with cooking spray (I coated my pan with butter). 

3. Coat with cinnamon sugar (make sure you coat it well – it helps the cake come out easier and coats it with a crusty deliciousness). 

4. Pour batter in pan. 

5. Put cinnamon sugar on top. 

6. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes (I was closer to the 60 minute mark). 

7. Cool and invert cake from pan onto a serving dish.


Bonus! Here are some updated pics. I recently hosted a wedding shower for my sister. Again, not total pro food photography, ignore the kitchen clutter, but you can see how this Danish Bundt Cake makes everything look better. {Oh, and that cake stand helps too, I snagged it from It’s my favorite!}
