What You Need To Make This Breakfast Bundt Cake Recipe?
Diced Ham: Think of the ham as the heart of this recipe. It brings a comforting, savory flavor that reminds me of cozy weekend family breakfasts. If you have some leftover ham, this is a great way to use it!
Baby Spinach: Not just for salads, baby spinach adds a lovely, earthy touch. It’s like a little wink to health in this indulgent dish. Plus, watching it wilt in the pan is like a mini kitchen magic show.
Minced Garlic: Garlic, oh garlic! A tiny amount transforms the spinach from plain to pizzazz. It’s the kind of ingredient that makes everyone ask, “What’s your secret?”
Cayenne and Cumin: These spices are the quiet heroes. A pinch of cayenne for a gentle kick, and a whisper of cumin for its warm, earthy notes. They’re like a cozy blanket wrapping around the other ingredients.
Frozen Shredded Hash Browns: Crisping up these hash browns is almost therapeutic. They add a lovely texture contrast, turning golden and crunchy – a delightful surprise in every bite.
Sweet Hawaiian Bread: This bread is the sweet smile of the dish. Its subtle sweetness balances the savory notes and soaks up the egg mixture beautifully, creating a soft, pillowy texture.
Green Onions: A burst of freshness and color! Chopped green onions scatter their mild, peppery flavor throughout, brightening every slice.
Eggs, Milk, and Heavy Cream: These are the binders, the elements that bring everything together in a rich, custardy embrace. When whisked and poured over the layers, they work their magic to create something truly special.
Shredded Cheese – Cheddar and Colby Jack: Cheese is the gooey glue of this dish. The cheddar brings a sharp, tangy flavor, while the colby jack adds a smooth, creamy texture. Together, they create a cheesy, melty canopy over the top that’s irresistible.
Steps To Make Breakfast Bundt Cake:
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to a cozy 400° F. Get your Bundt pan ready with a nice, even coating of non-stick baking spray – we want every slice to come out perfect! In a large pan, wilt your baby spinach with some olive oil, then add that hint of garlic. Once it’s cooled, set it aside.
Step 2: Now, let’s get those hash browns crispy in another skillet. Once they’re just right, let them join the spinach in cooling down. Here’s where the fun begins: layering! Start with half of your diced bread at the bottom of the Bundt pan. Then, let’s get creative – layer your ham, green onions, that gorgeous spinach, crispy hash browns, and a cup of cheese.
Step 3: Pour your whisked mixture of eggs, milk, cream, and spices over this. Cover it and give it 30 minutes to soak up all those flavors. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake for 40 minutes. The result? A golden, cheesy masterpiece!
Here’s a tip to take your Breakfast Bundt Cake to the next level; give it some time to rest before baking. Once you’ve poured the egg mixture over the bread, cheese and other ingredients, in the Bundt pan cover it up. Let it sit for 30 minutes before popping it into the oven. This resting period allows the bread to fully soak up the egg mixture ensuring that every bite is moist and bursting with flavor. It also helps all the flavors come together harmoniously for a delightful taste. This simple step can truly transform your Breakfast Bundt Cake from good, to exceptional!
