Whole wheat flour and currants pack this bundt cake with fiber, which helps support digestion.  

If red currants are too sour, use the white variety instead, which are much sweeter.

Preparation steps

Rinse the currants, drain and gently remove from the stems with a fork.

In a mixing bowl, beat 3/4 cup butter until fluffy with a hand mixer. Add a pinch of salt and the cane sugar and continue to beat until the mixture is creamy.

Add eggs one at a time, beating to combine.

Gently fold drained currants into the batter. Brush a Bundt cake pan (9 inches in diameter) with the remaining butter and pour in the batter evenly. Bake the cake on the middle rack of a preheated oven at 350°F until golden brown and set, about 40 minutes.
