On a good Saturday you can find me hanging out at Whole Foods. That may sound odd to some, but if you’re a regular reader here, then you know that it’s one of our favorite stops for tasty craft beers, BBQ, and cheese.
Guess what though, they have an amazing bakery too. Filled with cookies, pies, breads, donuts, cakes… it’s basically everything that this guy is all about. Their bundt cakes are hard to beat and if you’re stopping in for liquid refreshment at the Whole Foods, the move is to grab one for your table full of pals and devour it as quickly as humanly possible.
Whole Foods makes a variety of bundt cakes, such as chocolate, raspberry, or pumpkin and they seem to have a rotation of various flavors so you never know what you’ll find. On a recent trip to Whole Foods we found the intriguing option of pink lemonade. Who doesn’t enjoy a refreshing pink lemonade on a hot summer day? Communists, that’s who. Now you might not consider bundt cake refreshing, but trust me it is. I know about these things. They don’t call me Pastry Dan for nothing.
This cake was delicious and super moist, which is a good thing because there’s nothing worse than a dry cake. However, the true test is returning to it after it has sat for a few days. I squirreled one of these cakes away for future enjoyment and I take joy in reporting the cake was still moist days later. I’m not sure where the breaking point is because it didn’t last that long within the confines of my home. Needless to say, you can enjoy it for a couple days.
Citrus flavors go great with pastries, and the pink lemonade icing is no exception. The lemon flavor is the perfect sweet, tart compliment to this cake. The best part of the cake is the inner ring. The icing tends to accumulate in the center so the bites are loaded with icing. If you’re not into that, I don’t know what to tell ya. Perhaps you should excuse yourself from Pastry’s Corner and examine the choices you’ve made in life. I’ll tell ya this though, next time you’re at Whole Foods keep an eye out for the pink lemonade bundt cake, I highly recommend it.
