Heeerrrree we are again. I swear Tuesdays come around faster than any day of the week! ;) It’s Tuesdays With Dorie time. Our recipe this week for Brown Sugar Bundt Cake was chosen by Peggy from Pantry Revisited. She’ll have the recipe!
I decided to make half a recipe and bake it in an 8x4 inch bread pan. Small problem, my fault. I added too many extra mix-ins to it and I think it caused a big sink hole in the middle of the loaf. I made the nut version of the cake and used almond meal and slivered almonds. Then I decided to add some chopped chocolate and toffee bits (1/2 cup each). So while the taste of the cake is great, it wasn’t pretty. Should I show you? You know, sometimes we all have kitchen failures.
Well, you might be thinking how that sinking thing happens to all of us at one time or another. I’m pretty sure this really just happened because the batter/cake was too weighed down with extras. Then this happened, too---
Half the cake stuck to the bottom of the loaf pan—pretty much because the toffee made it extra sticky. Sigh.
Oh well, you can’t win them all, right. As I mentioned, the flavors were great with the hint of almond extra playing well with the crunchy almonds and the added chocolate. While I love toffee, I wish I would have just left it out of this one. I’m going to have to freeze “slices” of this because I don’t want to keep eating it. We’ll see how the next day goes and if anyone else has enough to just let them eat it to get rid of it.
Cutest photos ever here for ya---
Sigh. He sure makes up for his stinker-ness being so darned cute. ;)
That and he’s such a good little
slave helper, too! ;)
Then there’s this hottie---
That’s right—he can be taught. Kevin’s first time driving a tractor. He was really enjoying digging up posts! What a man! He worked all day Saturday outside, mostly on trying to fix our sprinklers that aren’t working. Thanks to Cindy and Warren for all their help, too! We almost have a complete working sprinkler system!
See ya next time!
