Sunday afternoon tea cake

Sundays are perfect for the afternoon tea ceremony and we do celebrate it in our home from time to time. There will be a cake nothing too fancy at all, as we rather prefer a nice and delicious bundt cake for this special event. I am a huge fan of berries, hence there will be often berries mixed into the cake batter.
Bundt cakes are usually not as sweet (at least not they ones I am doing home) and this is why they are my favorite, they are super easy to make, do not require special ingredients and can be pepped up with different flavors, fruits or berries... so you will never get tiered of them. And let´s be frank, bundt cake always just look spectacular.

I do not know how many bundt cakes I have been making in my life, they are not only my favorite for Sunday afternoon tea, but also a perfect to bring along cake, when visiting friends.

Today a moist butter vanilla flavored bundt cake with fresh blueberries. The cake is also perfect for a sweet breakfast or a brunch invitation. You can store it in a container for a couple of days and it wont lose on the taste. The texture is velvet like and the taste of vanilla and berries unbeatable. It taste light (despite the ingredients) and makes you want to have another bite of the cake, as soon as you took the first bite (kind of dangerous cake if you ask)...
