Pomegranate Lime Bundt Cake Recipe

Make this delicious pomegranate lime bundt cake recipe and decorate your holiday dessert table with bursts of color and flavor!

Christmas desserts just aren’t the same without a burst of red and/or green color in them. I have a sensitivity to artificial food coloring, so I’m always looking for natural sources of vibrant color to add to my holiday desserts. Fortunately, pomegranate arils work perfectly for that.

They’re sweet, crunchy, and delicious, and they looked beautiful on top of my lime bundt cake!

Because I struggle with cake decorating, a bundt cake recipe is my dream dessert. When you have a fancy, detailed bundt pan like this one, it adds instant decoration without the need to add lots of frosting on the top.

Bundt pans like that serve double duty, too, because they make excellent molds for Jello salad. This gorgeous Creamsicle Jello salad from my friend Brianne at Cupcakes and Kale Chips is the perfect example of that.

I really hope you love this pomegranate lime bundt cake recipe.

  1. Niiiiiice! First, I think that pomegranates do a lot of the decorating work – the arils are like little jewels. And second – nice bundt! I couldn’t resist that one. I love the flavor combo of pomp-lime, by the way. Sounds lovely!
