a jolly good bundt



my daughter Miss Molly decided to do some baking this weekend
this is what she came up with
she found the recipe here 




she added a few of these berries and a plop of cream
pure bundt joy
this cake has the most amazing flavour
{just a subtle taste of earl grey with the chocolate} 
give it a go if you are an earl grey tea lover
even worth a try if you aren't

Oh, good gravy! I'm sitting here, sipping my fourth cup of Earl this morning(yes, we're on a first name basis and yes, my husband knows all aboutt it), lamenting the fact that there is nothing chocolate to eat in this house and THIS pops up on my computer! I'm afraid if I made it I'd gobble the whole thing up myself. I wonder how well slices would freeze...

I love Bundt cake...and this looks like it would be a goody.

I hardly ever bake however, because it is only me and hubby here
and I don't need to be eating that whole thing myself.
I COULD...but SHOULDN'T

Oh YUM !

Your cake looks perfect, Koralee!
I love your new collages. They are such pretty combinations of your amazing photographs and great font styles.

I hope you had a great start to this new week. We are having such amazing weather! Even with my sniffles, I couldn't resist a walk ~
God bless you always ~ and may the joy you give come back to you 1000x's !
