Okay im at a bit of a loss here...Ive been ask to make a cake for a dear family friend..but he doesnt like icing. Not even a thin layer he just knocks it off. I know pound cake is an option...any other ideas?? I mean ive never had a request like this before!
How about ganache?
What about a bundt cake with a sprinkle of powdered sugar?
I offered the ganache option...that was shut down. The powdered sugar suggestion sounds good Jess155...what kind of bundt cake would you recommend? Any good recipes?
My father was never big on frosting, even before he was diagnosed with mild type 2 diabetes. Now, he's even less into frosting.
His birthday cake, therefore, is a pound cake, baked in a Bundt mold, and served naked.
The only other kind of cake I can think of that's routinely served naked would be angel food.
Or what about maybe a jelly roll? I believe those are regularly served naked.
Pound cake was one option but i Do that for them all the time...never done a jelly roll. I settled on a cinnamon coffee cake..he really likes cinnamon so this might to. It has a nice crumb on top. thanks for all the help!!!!
Ooh cinnamon coffee cake sounds great!
ADoes he also dislike a whipped frosting? I dont really care for sweet frostings either but I like Pastry Pride because it is not too sweet.
Maybe a sponge with lemon curd inside, and powdered sugar on top?
What is it he doesn't like about frosting? For some people it's the sweetness, sometimes the texture.
If it's sweetness, a curd or a very lightly sweetened whipped cream, or maybe a raspberry whipped cream would work, and a sponge is light enough to pair well with it.
Oh, I totally missed your post on deciding to do a coffee crumble cake, good choice :)
AThese are all such good ideas' I'm expanding my list of cakes and options for ppl who don't like frosting. So the frosting is a taste as well as a health issue, he doesn't like the sweetness or the texture. So I just went with something that was plain. He's one of those people who ate picky but they don't know that they are lol. They go halfway with the direction. So hopefully this works lol
AAre* not ate haha. One of those days man
AWhat about a lemon drizzle cake that doesn't have icing but is moist and tasty
How about either fresh or dried glazed fruit / nuts on the top
AThank all you guys so much for your help! And for the bundt cake recipe! Makes my job so much easier!
I love pound cake just like it is without any frosting!!! That is the only cake I eat without frosting!!!
What about a cheesecake?
fresh apple cake made in bundt pan. very moist and delicious. my mil always made them.
