This cake was chosen for Club: BAKED as our first October recipe! I haven't baked along with Club: BAKED for a while (actually I have baked along on quite a few, just hadn't blogged about them) so this was a nice recipe to jump back in with.
Thank you to Stephanie at Ice Cream Before Dinner for picking this recipe, you can click on the link to her website for the recipe for this cake.
I am a fan of bundt cakes and love the specialty shaped pans, but decided to go with my traditional bundt pan for this recipe because of the frosting, didn't want it to clash with the cake design.
This cake has a fun optional topping, caramel candy "shards" that you make to decorate the top with. They really made this cake an attention grabber. All in all, the Burnt Sugar Bundt Cake was a nice subtle dessert, it had a mellow flavor with a hint of caramel and a pound-cake like texture. The scent while baking filled the house and seemed to say "welcome to fall baking" :)
