May 10, 2011 – Peggy from Pantry Revisited chose Brown Sugar Bundt Cake on page 179.
I decided to make this for Mother’s Day and as we were going on a sunset cruise around the lovely Darwin Harbour I decided to make them as minis, I thought much easier to portion up. As regular readers know I have a serious weakness for buying silicone moulds so I divided the batter and made half choc chip and half pear and prune.
I thought since it was Mother’s Day I would make baby bundt cakes. Since it is babies that made me a mother!
This sadly, didn’t work out terribly well. This exceedingly moist and yummy cake just didn’t have enough structure (and perhaps too many mix ins) to allow them to slip gracefully from the silicone moulds that I had prepared with spray oil. The mini bundts broke, the wings fell off my dragonflies and the roses left their petals in the tin.
But, lets not focus on the bad (but when I make this again, and I will make this again, I will not go down the mini path). This is a seriously nice cake with subtle caramel notes. I liked the dark chocolate chip version best.
Happy belated Mother’s Day. I hope all had a good day and a brief moment went to thinking we wouldn’t be where we are are today without our mothers.
On that note go and check the TWD blogroll and see how the other Bundts came out.
Oh, as a late add- here is a photo of my new little man, good husband and myself on the above mentioned cruise.
