Festas Juninas, or the June Festivals, are popular Brazilian festivities that take place in June, as I explained before in this post… And we will be celebrating these cultural festivities this year with a super easy, mouthwatering Kitchen Blender Corn Bundt Cake (Bolo de Milho de Liquidificador) which is naturally gluten-free! Basically, the blender and oven do most of the work for you. 🙂 If you don’t believe it, check it out for yourself…
As celebrants thank Saint John for the rain and the abundant corn harvest, an arraial or huge event space is set up. This is brightly decorated with strings of colorful flags and paper balloons, and filled with tents or rough stalls. The festivities are lit up by sky lanterns, showers of fireworks, and bonfires.
People dress up in typical country bumpkin outfits, with straw hats, painted-on freckles, and gap-teeth, and women often sport checkered gingham dresses and pigtail braids.
Our corn bundt cake is super easy to make since all ingredients are simply mixed together in a blender and then baked. As I mentioned earlier, the blender and the oven do most of the work for you. 🙂 Thanks to Nana Oliveira — both a friend of mine and of this blog– we can savor this tasty, comforting treat. All the credit is hers!
This corn bundt cake is mildly sweet and can be served either for breakfast or as a snack. Our corn bundt cake can be served warm with butter, at room temperature accompanied by a cup of coffee, or chilled and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk. 😉
Fortunately, you don’t have to be in Brazil, celebrating Festas Juninas, in order to try this Kitchen Blender Corn Bundt Cake…
Make our corn bundt cake and choose any of the above 3 ways to serve it! Or better yet, do as I did and try it all 3 ways! 😉
