Father's Day Recipes: Apricot Blush Bundt Cake

This is another delicious afternoon-tea-cake idea for dad this weekend...



Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Serves 8-10


Ingredients:

- 150g unsalted butter, softened
- 80g (⅓ cup) caster sugar
- 4 eggs, at room temperature
- ½ cup Apricot Blush Syrup
- Zest of 1 lime
- 250g (1⅔ cup) plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Extra butter and flour for greasing and dusting the tin


For the icing:

- ¼ cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp
Apricot Blush Syrup

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180ºC (160ºC fan-forced, 350F, gas mark 4).

2. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

3. Add eggs and continue mixing on a lower speed for another minute.

4. Slowly pour in Apricot Blush Nectar and add lime zest, flour and baking powder and mix on a lower setting until the batter is just combined and smooth.

5. Grease a 22cm bundt cake tin (ring shape) with extra butter and dust with extra flour. Shake off excess flour.

6. Pour prepared batter around the tin and smooth out with a spoon or a spatula.

7. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

8. Remove from oven and turn the cake out onto a serving plate.

9. Mix together the icing sugar and Apricot Blush Nectar to make the icing.

10. Drizzle the icing over the warm cake and serve immediately

Tips and Tricks:

Store leftover cake in an air-tight container. Reheat any unused portions in the microwave for 20 seconds before serving.
