An easy vanilla bundt cake recipe with fresh raspberries, and a dreamy vanilla drizzle icing.

Vanilla Bundt Cake with raspberries

This is one special cake! I love how pretty bundt cakes are, and this simple vanilla bundt cake with fresh raspberries, is no exception.

What makes a bundt cake, a bundt cake?

A bundt cake, is a cake that is baked in a bundt tin, shaping it into a distinctive doughnut shape. The shape is inspired by a traditional Gugelhupf (popular in Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

The cake batter needs to be a lot more moist that other cake batters, because so much of the cake's surface is exposed to high temperatures.

I made this bundt cake in a 27cm bundt tin, but if you have a smaller tin, just fill it to two thirds full and use any remaining mixture to make some muffins.

This really is the perfect cake to brighten up your day!

Top tips for making bundt cakes

  1. Grease, grease and grease that bundt tin, and then add some flour and tap it around before getting rid of any excess. Get in all the corners. Even better, use some quick release cake spray. Leave no corner un-greased is the message.
  2. Leave the cake to cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a cake plate. The cake will start to come away from the sides as it cools.
  3. Substitute the raspberries in this recipe for other berries - blueberries or blackberries would work well, or a mixture. Or just leave them out altogether for a plain vanilla bundt cake.

A vanilla bundt cake recipe with fresh raspberries and a dreamy vanilla drizzle icing.


  • 150g Butter, softened
  • 350g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 300g Plain Flour
  • 1 TSP Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 150ml Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 50g Fresh Raspberries
  • For the Icing
  • 100g Icing Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Milk
  • 1/2 TSP Vanilla Paste
  • 2 TBSP Freeze Dried Raspberries for sprinkling


  1. Thoroughly butter and flour a 27cm Bundt Tin, or use a quick release cake spray and preheat the oven to 160°C/ 140°Fan.
  2. In a standing mixer (or by hand) cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs one by one.
  3. Fold in the flour and bicarbonate of soda, before mixing in the vanilla yogurt and vanilla paste.
  4. Spoon carefully into the tin and place on a baking tray. Push the fresh raspberries into the cake and make sure they are fully covered by the cake batter. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
  5. Leave the cake to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cake plate.
  6. Mix up the icing ingredients until you have a drizzle consistency (you might need to add a bit more milk) and then drizzle onto the cake before sprinkling over the freeze dried raspberries.
