Bundt cake is one of my favorite cakes to bake. In honor of the holidays, I baked this cake using pecans and raisins. This cake is perfectly balanced with sweetness, it's dense yet soft, and beautifully golden brown on the outside. I used white whole wheat flour for this cake and the texture is just perfect. The white whole wheat flour is a healthier option than all purpose flour.

I used pecans, but you can use walnuts. There is something special about pecans and holiday times, that I couldn't not used pecans. When using raisins in cakes, make sure they are the smaller ones.

In any baking, you want your ingredients to be at room temperature so make sure the eggs and the yogurt are at room temperature.

I used one of my favorite bundt cake pan by Nordic Ware. This is a perfect size and the quality is superb and will last you for years. To ensure your cake slides off easily and doesn't break, you want to make sure you grease the pan very carefully. I used olive oil spray and used a brush to ensure all edges and sides are covered with oil. You can also add some flour to your pan before adding the batter. For me, I usually skip adding the flour, because I think the oil gets the job done.

This cake is great with a cup of tea or coffee so I hope you try this recipe and enjoy this cake as much as I did!
