What a delicious couple of weeks it's been. So many new cakes to taste. This marble loaf recipe made perfect nibbling while watching the royal wedding. I knew it was going to be good, so I made two variations.
Pictured above is the chocolate and orange cake. Always a delicious combination. Below is my cardamom and espresso variation. I will now always remember that cardamom infuses any flavour you put beside it. Nonetheless, both cakes were heartily enjoyed.
Thanks to Carol of The Bake More blog for choosing this recipe. The complete recipe is available on her site. I see two elephants kissing in this cake slice. What do you see?
This week's recipe is Brown Sugar Bundt cake. I will add this one to my repetoire. The cake is a lovely moist base for a variety of options. Of course I chose too many and then the cake started to fall apart when I cut it.
Along with brown sugar, the main batter ingredient is ground walnuts. The texture is great. I wanted to use pears, as Dorie recommended. Since I had only canned, I wiped them off carefully, but they still added maybe too much moisture to the cake. I finished the cake off with a bittersweet chocolate glaze. Then company arrived and I almost forgot to snap a photo.
