Christmas is so soon I can’t believe it! This is such a busy time of year and it always seems to go by so fast! Allen and I have 3 Christmas parties this coming weekend haha but I wouldn’t have it any other way it’s always fun to spend time with friends and family! I’m always baking so much this time of year and I have another recipe to share today that is perfect for Christmas, my white chocolate peppermint bundt cake with buttercream icing! Allen and I ate this for breakfast 3 days in a row it was so good lol! I plan on making it again for Christmas Eve at my moms house. Let me know if you try it!!
White Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake
1 white cake mix box
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup water
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of white chocolate chips
2 sticks of unsalted butter
4 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 TBS of milk
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees and spray your bundt pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, boxes of pudding, oil, water, eggs with an electric mixer.
Add vanilla and peppermint extract and beat for 2 minutes on medium
Fold in 1 cup of white chocolate chips.
Pour batter into your bundt pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean!
For the icing beat softened butter until smooth.
Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and beat until combined, repeat with the remaining cups of powdered sugar adding only 1 cup at a time.
Add vanilla and beat icing until it becomes thicker and fluffy! If it seems too stick or thick, add a tablespoon of milk and combine until it is the right consistency.
Pipe your icing onto your cooled bundt cake (I like to fill the center hole with icing too) and then top with peppermint crunch!
