Storage Tips for a Champagne Bundt Cake

Here are some tips for storing your champagne bundt cake to maintain its moistness and delicate flavor:

Cooling Completely:

  • Let it Breathe, Then Wrap it Tight: Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan for about 10-15 minutes after removing it from the oven. This prevents condensation from forming inside the cake once wrapped.

Choosing the Right Container:

  • Airtight is Key: Once cool, tightly wrap the cake in plastic wrap or aluminum foil to prevent air exposure which can dry it out or allow it to absorb fridge odors.
  • Container Option: Alternatively, you can place the cooled cake in an airtight container. This is a good option if you aren’t sure how well the plastic wrap or foil will seal around the intricate bundt cake shape.

Storage Location:

  • Room Temperature or Fridge? If you plan to enjoy the cake within a few days (2-3 days), storing it at room temperature is perfectly fine. However, for longer storage (up to a week), it’s best to refrigerate the cake.

Freezing Option (Optional):

  • Freeze for Longer Enjoyment: The champagne bundt cake freezes well for up to 3 months. Make sure the cake cools completely before wrapping it tightly in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. Label it with the date for easy reference.

Tips for Thawing:

  • Thaw in the Fridge: When ready to enjoy a frozen cake, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. This slow thawing helps maintain the texture and moisture.

By following these storage tips, you can enjoy your delicious champagne bundt cake for days or even weeks!

Ingredients
  

For the Cake:

  • 1 cup canola oil
  • ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup champagne
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅓ cups all purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons baking soda

For the Champagne Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 teaspoons Champagne

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray your Bundt Pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, beat the oil, salt and sugar on medium-high for about 2 minutes or so.
  • Lower the speed to low, and add the eggs, one at a time. Be sure the egg is fully mixed in before adding each one.
  • Add the champagne and vanilla; beat until combined.
  • Turn your speed to medium-low and slowly mix in the flour, baking powder and baking soda, just until completely combined.
  • Pour the batter into your bundt pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan about 15-20 minutes.
  • Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the cake is cool, drizzle with the glaze. We spread it more than drizzled it. You do what you like. If you want it thinner, you can add more champagne, a tablespoon at a time blending well until desired consistency.
  • To make the glaze, simply mix the champagne, one teaspoon at a time into the powdered sugar, until it is the consistency you want. You may need more or less champagne which is why you do it one teaspoon at a time.

  1. Moving is always a challenge. If your help was anything like my help, I would want to eat the whole cake by myself! Sounds perfect for a “we got the job done” treat!!

  2. I baked with champagne once before and thought that the end result tasted, regrettably, not much like champagne. But I have a half a bottle left over from an event, and I’ve been wondering what to do with it: looks like it’s time to give champagne baked goods another try!
