Cherry Bundt Breakfast Danish – #BundtBakers

Try using your Bundt pan for something other than a cake for once by using puff pastry and cherry pie filling to create a quick and easy breakfast danish.

I’m super, crazy, jumping up and down in a way too tight bathing suit excited, to be hosting this month’s “Untraditional Bundts” themed Bundt Bakers. What I’m not too excited about is having to host this event from a kitchen that is not mine, whose oven is difficult in only the way that a kitchen with an electric oven can be. So please forgive the horrid pictures featured here, which will eventually be replaced when I once again have access to my normal camera gear and photography accouterments, not to mention a gas oven.

I originally chose the theme “Untraditional Bundts” because I felt that most people only envisioned cakes when they heard the word Bundt. I wanted to change all of that and show everyone that there are so many other options and possibilities when it comes to using a Bundt pan. Unfortunately, my original plan to show y’all how to craft a bird seed wreath was nixed upon discovery of our group’s rule which states that each Bundt must be baked. Quite honestly, I felt with the adherence of this rule, my original intentions for this theme were made completely null and void.

Bundt pans just aren’t for cakes anymore. Try using them to make a jello mold, meatloaf, or even stuffing. Below are a few more ideas to help spark your creativity.

Eventually, however, I understood that rules are rules, and in some cases not meant to be broken, so I put my thinking cap on and tried to decide on a new plan of action. After searching online, I discovered that I was unable to find any form of breakfast danish recipe which was baked using a Bundt pan. Suddenly, I had a recipe that I knew I could work with; one that would quickly and easily allow anyone to make a cherry danish for breakfast with very little effort involved.

The next time you find yourself wanting to make something for breakfast that’s a little extra special, I suggest giving this recipe a try. Puff pastry and cherry pie filling make this lovely breakfast treat one that everyone will joyfully rave over and ask for again and again. And since it’s so simple to throw together, you won’t mind doing it. So y’all, get out that Bundt pan and put it to good use for something other than dessert. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Try using your Bundt pan for something other than a cake for once by using puff pastry and cherry pie filling to create a quick and easy breakfast danish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Sheet Puff Pastry, Thawed on the Counter for 30 Minutes
  • 1 Cup Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Half & Half
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Try using your Bundt pan for something other than a cake for once by using puff pastry and cherry pie filling to create a quick and easy breakfast danish.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Use the unsalted butter to liberally grease a Bundt pan.
  3. Cut the puff pastry into quarters and then cut each quarter in half to form two triangles.
  4. Place each triangle into the bottom of a Bundt pan, allowing them to overlap just a bit. HERE is an example of what it should look like.
  5. Press the edges of the puff pastry down where they join one another.
  6. Evenly spoon the cherry pie filling in a circle in the middle of the puff pastry.
  7. Fold the corners of each triangle into the center of the Bundt pan. HERE is an example of what it should look like.
  8. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the top of the Danish if puffed and golden brown.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, sea salt, half & half, and vanilla extract.
  10. Drizzle the sugar icing over the warm cherry danish.

Suggestions:

  • While you can always use canned cherry pie filling for this recipe, I suggest using Homemade Bing Cherry Pie Filling.
  • Use a Silicone Spatula to serve the cherry danish straight out of the Bundt pan. Each triangle of puff pastry will yield one serving.Sur La Table Glitter Spatula
  • If the puff pastry is too soft it will be hard to work with, make sure to not over thaw it.

Improvements:

  • Place thinly sliced cream cheese on top of the puff pastry before topping it with the cherry pie filling.
  • Add chocolate chips on top of the cherry pie filling before folding over the puff pastry.
  • There is absolutely no need to get fancy with this recipe, a normal Bundt Pan will work perfectly to make this danish.
