No one will be able to resist this perfectly sweet and moist, glazed brown sugar bundt cake. Made with Greek yogurt for major decadence and richness!


Ingredients

Cake

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 and 1/2 cups pastry flour
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt, room temperature (or sour cream)

Brown Sugar Glaze

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

To Make the Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray the inside of a bundt cake pan with baking spray.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment fitted, about 3 minutes (or in a large bowl using a hand mixer). Add vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides between additions. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. 
  4. Add half of the flour mixture to the butter and sugar, then mix until flour is completely mixed in. Add Greek yogurt and mix to combine. Then add remaining flour, scraping down sides after adding. 
  5. Pour batter into prepared bundt cake pan, then smooth the top with the back of a spatula. Bake for 35 minutes, or until cake is golden brown on the outside and springs back slightly when you push on it.
  6. Let cool in pan for at least 15 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely before adding glaze.

To Make the Glaze:

  1. Combine brown sugar, milk, and salt in a small sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then let reduce for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and let cool slightly before pouring over cake.
