Sasquatch. Yeti. Bigfoot. He goes by so many names, yet he’s still an enigma. He could be behind that tree in the woods, or perhaps in the icy mountain of a theme park ride, but most likely you’ll find him… in a bundt cake.
With the help of a Bigfoot cookie cutter, slicing into a bundt cake can reveal magical things, like hidden chocolate cake Bigfoots randomly placed throughout. Placing pre-made cake into the center of this bundt doesn’t change the texture, since the batter serves as a protective layer. Cake upon cake is never a bad thing.
Slice this cake up and surprise your friends and family… you never know where Bigfoot is going to turn up!
Bigfoot Bundt Cake
– pre-made chocolate cake
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
– 2 cups sugar
– 3 eggs
– 1 cup buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cut out pieces of the chocolate cake using the Bigfoot cookie cutter. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar, then add the eggs one at a time until combined.
Alternate the flour mixture with the buttermilk and vanilla just until combined.
Generously grease a bundt pan. Pour a layer of batter along the bottom of the pan, then place the Bigfoot cake pieces upside down, randomly around the cake pan. Carefully pour in the rest of the batter over and around the cake pieces until they are just covered.
Place the filled bundt pan on a baking sheet (in case of spillage) and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer test comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan until the pan is cool to the touch, then turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice the cooled cake to reveal the hidden Bigfoots.
