Nutty, Chocolaty, Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake

This week's TWD pick comes from my pal Jennifer. Early on in participating in this group I took a look at Jennifer's blog and saw that she was also from Medford, MA. Turns out we lived just a few minutes apart. She and I have been a team for operation baking GALS for about the last year and a half. She always posts some great recipes and this one was a fantastic pick.

I read all the warnings about cakes sticking to the pan in advance. I prepared for cake battle by dutifully greasy and flouring my already non stick pan. I covered up the swirl in the middle with batter- all the tricks other bakers had shared. When it was out of the oven, I took a quick picture before unmolding.

Held my breath, flipped the pan and:
It stuck. At least this cake had the good sense of being delicious to make up for the appearance. I loved the chocolate cinnamon combo and the good sour cream taste of the cake. Great pick! Find the recipe on Jennifer's blog.

Oh no! I'm sure it was still wonderful! I'm completely jealous of your friendship with Jennifer, by the way. How awesome to meet through TWD and work together on Baking Gals - I love it!

It was just so good, it didn't matter if it stuck

Karen said...

Oh no!!! I am glad your cake had the good sense to be tasty after breaking like that! :)

Jennifer said...

I'm so sorry your cake stuck. I hope you didn't waste a bit of the parts that did. I'm thinking that would be awesome sprinkled on vanilla ice cream.:) I'm so glad you loved this, even if it didn't turn out the way you'd hoped.

I'm so fortunate to know such an amazing person that lives quite literally, just around the corner. :)

Thank you for baking along with me!

How dare that cake stick after you were so careful to prevent it? :) I'm glad the delicious factor made up for it!

The great thing about TWD is that we all get to share these experiences. Your cake looked so perfect in the first picture! That's neat that you and Jennifer are from the same town.

I so hate when that happens! I seriously hold my breath every time I unmold a bundt cake. At least this one tasted good so that is the only thing that matters.
