Apple-Cider Doughnut Cake
If you love the apple-cider doughnuts often sold at farmers' markets, you'll love this cake! Baked in a Bundt pan, it's essentially a giant cakey doughnut, made a little more wholesome with whole-wheat flour. A blend of olive oil and applesauce helps keep it moist. This classic fall dessert recipe appears in our cookbook, "A New Way to Bake" (Clarkson Potter). Martha also made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 802.
German Chocolate Bundt Cake
German chocolate cake is defined by its iconic coconut-pecan frosting; for this recipe, we've bucked tradition and tucked it inside of this Bundt cake instead. Here's the trick: Transfer the batter to the pan, then spoon on the gooey goodness—we used a small ice cream scoop for easy release and evenly distributed dollops. It settles into the middle while baking, so when you cut through that glossy ganache, a scrumptious surprise awaits.
Kentucky Bourbon-Brown Butter Cake
Use a high-quality bourbon -- we like Bulleit -- for the glaze; the flavor will shine through.

Orange-Cardamom Bundt Cake
This cardamom-scented sunburst of a Bundt cake gets a double dose of orange-liqueur-spiked syrup: It's soaked into the bottom via skewer-poked holes, and brushed on top to harden into a fine, crackly glaze that sets off the rays so well. Serve it for brunch or afternoon tea, it pairs especially well with a spiced cup of milky chai.
Key Lime Bundt Cake
This Bundt cake takes its flavor cues from Key lime pie and fuses it with the best part of a coffee cake: the streusel, of course! The cinnamon-scented nubbins get scattered in the pan, layered in the middle, and sprinkled on top before baking. As for the lime, a full cup of juice flavors the batter, the syrup that infuses the cake, and makes an appearance in the sweet and tart glaze.
Sour Cream-Mocha Bundt Cake
This rich and delicious cake not only holds up for days--it gets even better. Baked with both instant powdered and brewed espresso, it boasts subtle coffee flavor. Sour cream in the batter ensures a moist texture and enhances taste.
