TWD - Mocha Walnut Marbled Bundt


What I learned this week......



.....I'll never make it as a professional bundt cake marbler.  I ran the damn knife through the batter, but all I ended up with was a big chocolate glob in the middle of the cake.  Hence the chocolate sauce to hide my shortcomings.

But actually it worked out fine, because it made it easier to just eat the chocolate portion!  Don't get me wrong, the other part was great too, but given the choice, I preferred the chocolate.

Thanks to Erin of When in Doubt.... for this week's choice.  It was a hit around here, especially served with a scoop of coffee ice cream! YUM!

You know the drill.  Head over to Erin's site for the recipe

  9. You know what cracks me up -- I'll work with any pastry dough, pie crust, phyllo, or meringue. But don't ask me to marble! It makes me too nervous! Nice cake!

  12. Marbling is definitely hit and miss, but who's to say what's the proper marbling configuration? There's not one. Your cake looks great and I'm sure the ice cream and chocolate sauce was delicious with it.
