I wanted to make something simple and fun for Fourth of July this year. While everything is red, white, and blue, you could make my Chocolate Berry Flag Cake! But, this simple Bundt cake recipe is festive and fun!

This sprinkle cake with no artificial colors is the perfect way to celebrate literally anything! I love making burnt cakes because it’s a great cake to make ahead of time for any party. Bundt cakes are best when they can cool completely so I love baking them at night and letting them cool until the following morning. This makes it easy to remove and frost before the party.

Baker’s Tips

  • Make sure your butter is soft. It’s best to let it soften at room temperature.
  • You can also use yogurt in place of sour cream if you prefer.
  • You can add sprinkles into the batter if you’d like. The natural sprinkles don’t bake as well as conventional ones do, so I usually leave them out for this reason.
  • Be sure to store extra cake in an airtight container.

FAQ’s

What if I don’t have a bundt pan?

You can make this in a 9×13-inch baking pan instead of a Bundt pan if you prefer. You should check the cake after 35 to 40 minutes if you bake it in this pan.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, just be sure to store the cake in a.m cake dome if you bake and frost the day before. Otherwise, you can make the cake ahead of time and leave it in the pan overnight and then frost it the day of the party.

How should I store this?

Store in a cake dome or in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out if you have extra.
