Clove Bundt Cake Recipe

This old-fashioned bundt cake is so moist, it doesn't need any frosting. But I sometimes sprinkle it with confectioners' sugar for a pretty presentation. —Mary Zawlocki, Gig Harbor, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:12-14 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional


  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs; mix well (mixture will appear curdled). Combine the flour, cinnamon, cloves, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk.
  • 2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack; cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 12-14 servings.

"In the fall, this is wonderful with a dollop of whipped cream and a hot cup of tea (with milk and sugar, of course!)"
