Sugary & Buttery - Toffee Bundt Cake with Mandarin

How I love bundt cakes! Pure and simple, nothing but moist cake. And they look so ridiculously cute! This toffee bundt cake is slightly soaked in mandarin sirup. The mandarin goes so well with the rich toffee flavor of the cake and gives it a fruity and summery taste. Of course, the mandarin soak is optional since the cake tastes super delicious on its own! Actually, try this recipe and soak the cake in rum or coffee for the colder seasons. Possibilities are endless!

To make things a little more simple, I just used the juice from canned mandarins. It works and tastes wonderfully and will safe you some time and work. All I did was apply some of sirup onto the cake with a little brush, you don’t even need that much to give the cake a hint of mandarin. The mix of flavors here is really amazing, toffee and mandarin, but you can sure play with it and use as much juice as you want!
