Bundt Cake with Cheesecake Center is an elegant vanilla, cherry cake with cheesecake center that combines two classic desserts into a deliciously rich and creamy concoction.

Bundt Cakes are very popular on our blog. We have made quite a few of them, so you have a variety to pick from. Like the Ricotta Bundt Cake and Vanilla French Custard Bundt Cake.

Bundt Cake with Cheesecake Center

Today we are talking about two of my favorite things combined together. And just to clarify, both of those so called things are “cake”. A smooth and creamy cherry New York cheesecake sandwiched between layers of dense and buttery bundt cake. Then are combined in this decadent bundt cake with cheesecake center for a scrumptious dessert.

One night I just couldn’t decide what to make for our party next day, bundt cake or cheesecake. Then, it hit me that I don’t have to compromise, since I can have both. Hence, this Bundt Cake with Cheesecake Center loaded with juicy cherries was born. Also, I whipped some vanilla cream cheese frosting, and covered the cake in it. Then, I decorated with some shaved chocolate and enjoyed a slice right away.

This is one serious desert, that its so easy to make. Because it requires no crazy measuring, no crazy ingredients, just mix, bake, cover in frosting and eat. So many great flavors, I like how aromatic the bundt cake is, the vanilla flavor is elegant, the layers rich and buttery, while the cheesecake is smooth and  creamy. Lastly, the frosting is sweet, airy and I like how the chocolate shavings break the vanilla palette here.

Why You’ll Love This Bundt Cake with Cheesecake Center

  • The cake is festive and colorful, and perfect for special occasions or birthday party.
  • In addition, it has delicious flavor and texture.
  • So good that kids and adults will love it equally.
  • Perfect project to do with the kids, everyone will have so much fun.

Bundt Cake with Cheesecake Center Recipe Tips

  • Firstly, I prefer using a silicone bundt cake pan when baking bundt cakes. It just makes the removal process so much easier and its guaranteed that the cake won’t stick to the pan.
  • Also, if you will be using a silicone bundt cake pan consider that it heats up quicker than a regular pan. Hence, check for doneness a few minutes earlier.
  • In addition, make sure you sift the flour, otherwise the cake may be not as smooth.
  • Similarly, make sure you use room temperature eggs, you will be whisking them with warm-hot cream. If the eggs are very cold, they will curd and cook.
  • When mixing in the cream mixture into the eggs, do it very slowly, as the egg mixture needs to warm up. Otherwise, you may end up “cooking” some of the eggs, and the batter will become unusable.
  • In addition, vanilla extract can be expensive. So, please use 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Based on how much vanilla flavor you prefer in your desserts.

Tools/Ingredients I used to make this Vanilla French Custard Bundt Cake Recipe:

  • Silicone Bundt Cake – I love using this one, makes cake removal a breeze!
  • Vanilla Beans – these are the ones more reasonably priced, if you decide to splurge and get some for the holidays.
  • Vanilla Extract – if you decide to use the extract instead.
