This apricot banana bundt cake is perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, brunch or coffee break! Apricot puree and banana make it extra moist & add sweetness to it.
Guys if you love bundt cakes and quick breads you will enjoy this easy banana bundt cake recipe with fresh apricot puree! To make it I followed my Banana Bread Recipe.
Now I did not follow the recipe to a tee. I omitted butter and used pureed apricots instead of 2 bananas. You see I had way too many apricots on hand so I figured it would be a great way to use them. The final result was amazing! This homemade bundt cake is unbelievably moist thanks to the apricots and banana. The flavor combo is just perfect and I was over the moon with the way it turned out!
By the way, apricots are not only delicious but also have many health benefits. Some of you might be lucky enough to have an apricot tree (or two) in your garden. If you do or if you have a good neighbor who gives you a huge basket full of this fruit make something tasty out of them.
How to make this apricot banana bundt cake extra delicious:
You know how it is. All the great things are simple. In this case it is simple apricot sauce. It’s a sauce I made by combining leftover apricot puree with sugar, lemon and heavy cream. I brought it to a boil and simmered for about 5 minutes before turning off the heat.
Instead of pouring it over this apricot banana bundt cake as a whole I decided to pour it over each slice separately. That way each person gets more sauce.
Good to know:
- Bake it in a 6-cup bundt cake pan.
- If you don’t have a bundt cake pan you can use a loaf tin instead (use at least a 2-pound tin).
- Powdered sugar is completely optional but it make the cake look nicer.
- If you would like to make this banana bundt cake but don’t want to use apricots, try peaches or nectarines instead.
Guys, when I had my first bite of this bundt cake I knew right away it would be a hit. And it was! Every single family member (see 7 people) enjoyed both the bundt cake and the sauce very much. It was simply delicious.
So guys if you like homemade desserts you will love this one!
