Cheerwine Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Summertime in the South brings the fun of Cheerwine, and when baked into a Bundt cake for an afternoon picnic, it brings the perfect end to a summer meal.

Cheerwine Bundt Cake

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

My recipe of the day is for a Cheerwine Bundt cake which I am posting with the Bundt Bakers group for the June offering. The theme for this month is Bundt Cakes for Picnics, and what better way to enjoy a picnic than one of the classic Southern flavors of soda, Cheerwine?

What is Cheerwine?

If you don't know, Cheerwine is a cherry type soda. It comes in both regular and diet, and while I love the diet to drink, I don't recommend using that in the recipe. It is because as a baking formula, the cake wants sugar.

Of course, if you don't have Cheerwine in your area (it is a Southern thing) you can opt for a different kind of cherry soda. This one is lighter, but there are black cherry sodas by Faygo I think. And it wouldn't be too evil to try using Dr. Pepper in this, although it wouldn't be quite as cherry-centric.

Cake and Frosting Type

The cake base is pound cake which is nice and heavy- and as far as cakes go, pound cake is the easiest to make ahead and freeze. The frosting is not good to freeze, however.

Since the frosting is a buttercream, it has that soft character, so won't set up hard as a glaze will. The flavors are softer and not overwhelmingly cherry, and the color is blush as well, to get out of the way of the flavor of the cake.
