Banana-Maple-Bacon Bundt Cake
Moist, yummy, and quick dessert with bacon crumbles!
- Serves: 1 person
- 1(15.25 ounce) package banana cake mix
- 1(3.5 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix
- 4large eggs
- 1cup water
- ¼cup vegetable oil
- 1medium ripe banana, mashed
- 3slices thick-cut bacon, chopped into small pieces
- 2cups confectioners' sugar
- 3tablespoons milk, or more to taste
- 3tablespoons maple syrup
- 2teaspoons maple extract
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).
Step 2Whisk cake mix and pudding mix together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center; add eggs to the well. Then add water, vegetable oil, and mashed banana; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat on low for 4 minutes. Let batter rest for 5 minutes, then pour into the prepared pan.
Step 3Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out mostly clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
Step 4While the cake is cooling, cook bacon in a skillet and over medium-high heat, until evenly browned and just about crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
Step 5Mix confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, maple syrup, and maple extract for glaze in a small bowl until thoroughly combined. If glaze is too thick, add a bit more milk.
Step 6Drizzle glaze over the cooled cake, then sprinkle with bacon.
