Red, White & Blue Bundt Cake with Fresh Berries
Red, White, & Blue Bundt Cake with Fresh Berries is a festive recipe with yellow cake topped with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries & blueberries.
- 1 vanilla cake mix
- 4 ounce package instant vanilla pudding
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 large eggs
- 12 ounce package white chocolate chips optional
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
- 2-4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 pint blueberries
- 1 16 ounce container strawberries thinly sliced like pictured
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients: cake mix, pudding, and flour.
Beat in water, milk eggs and vanilla extra until smooth.
Stir in 12-ounce bag of white chocolate chips, if desired. I didn't do this, for this cake.
Pour into prepared bundt pan for 50-55 minutes until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cook cake for 15 minutes on cooling rack, then turn cake over on cake plate or stand. Prepare buttercream frosting.
In a large bowl cream butter until smooth. Add confectioner's sugar to the butter and beat until smooth. Gradually beat in the vanilla extract and heavy cream with an electric mixer until smooth. Continue to beat for 3 -5 minutes until buttercream is smooth and whipped in texture. Depending on the type of buttercream you want, add more cream or less. I like mine to be stiff, but not too thick. I use about 3-4 tablespoons of heavy cream.
Frost a thin layer of frosting on the cake. I did this in sections right before I added the fruit. Add blueberries to the cake, as pictured. I did one larger section. Alternate strawberries and vanilla buttercream. I did this by the larger sections of the bundt cake pan, I put the strawberries and then I did the buttercream on the small strips of the bundt cake. You can do the frosted part of the cake any way you would like, I ended up using a large star tip. For frosting tips click here.
