Summer is right around the corner, which reminds me of s’mores, so I thought I’d turn everyone’s favorite summer treat into a s’mores bundt cake. Of course I did. I make everything into a bundt cake. Is this bundt obsession turning into a problem? I hope not.
This was my most challenging bundt to date. Often I’ll be sitting around and a bundt idea will pop into my head, as was the case with the Samoa bundt cake and the Pina Colada bundt cake. I’ll research on the internet to see if anyone has tried it before (pretty much to see if its possible) then set out to either try one of their recipes, or to develop one myself. Sometimes, my recipes fail. At that point, I either decide if I want to try again, or give up and move on to another. Yes, there are bundt attempts that have never made it to the pages of betsylife. They are in the bundt graveyard never to be seen again.
The s’mores bundt cake you see here is my fourth attempt. I really envisioned a gooey, marshmallow swirl in the center of the cake, but lo and behold, marshmallow fluff is too light to bake in the oven. I suppose that’s why I couldn’t find another bundt like this one anywhere online. My swirl is in there, just not as marshmallow-y as I would have liked. To compensate I added the toasted marshmallow frosting layer on top of the ganache. I must say, its not a bad touch.
This cake is majorly delicious, and definitely gives you that s’mores flavor. Even though its not EXACTLY what I set out to make, I know you’ll love it just the same.
