This is the vanilla bundt cake recipe you will want to make over and over again.
It is that good.
My kids love this time of year...just before Valentine's Day. It isn't that my kids are mushy like that, but they know I will be experimenting in the kitchen. I try to develop a few romantic sweet dessert recipes each year, and my kids get to be my guinea pigs. If they like something, it has a chance to make it onto my blog :-).

Do you own a bundt pan? It really helps to make your cake fancy!
What is a bundt cake?
Bundt cakes are beautiful, decorative cakes that are perfect for a crowd. You can slather icing, powdered sugar, or even frosting on top.
Bundt cakes are the only cake I can think of that got its name from a brand. Nordic Ware trademarked the name bundt in the 1950's and started producing bundt pans. The fancy bundt cake pans caught on and are still popular today.
As you can see in the picture above, a gluten free bundt cake is very similar to a gluten free pound cake. Both are moist and velvety. They just melt in your mouth.
If you love fresh raspberry recipes as much as I do, try this fresh raspberry mousse recipe. It is one of the most popular recipes on my blog :-).
The secret tip to a moist and delicious gluten free bundt cake is to add a box of pudding mix to the batter. It will make your gluten free bundt cake recipe hard to resist. I used the slow cook vanilla pudding box mix, but I am sure the quick cook would work just as well.
Raspberries are in season year-round, so you should be able to find fresh raspberries for this gluten free vanilla cake recipe. If you can't, feel free to chop up strawberries or another fresh berry as a substitute. You can also skip the fruit, add chocolate chips, or anything you want in this cake.
I didn't get as many pictures of the steps to make this cake. I usually get a ton so you can see how easy my recipes are to make. I was in a bit of a rush with this cake because I had to get it in the oven in time to have it ready before the kids got out of school.
How do you know when the cake is baked?
I love to use a simple method called the toothpick test. Insert a long toothpick (or wooden kabob stick if your bundt cake pan is deep) into several areas on the bundt cake. Insert midway down the cake to the middle. Remove the toothpick. If you see batter or crumbs on the toothpick, the cake needs to bake longer.
Instant pudding mix or cook pudding mix?
I used cook pudding mix (the kind you need to cook on the stove) for this recipe, but you can use either type of pudding mix. Don't make the pudding and add pudding to your recipe, just use the box of mix and pour it directly into the dry ingredients when mixing. (See recipe for more details.)
Can you use frozen raspberries?
You can use frozen raspberries, but they have more juice and are mushier than using fresh raspberries. This may affect the moisture level of the cake. Frozen raspberries also tend to be more tart in flavor.
