TWD: Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake



As you can see this is not a bundt cake. I don't have a full size bundt cake pan and didn't feel like dealing with the tiny ones I have that never come clean. My solution was to make half the recipe and I put it in my loaf pan!

The other big change I made was substituting the walnuts. I already had ground up almonds in my cupboard so I took the easy route. I have been having a bit of a hard time getting my Dorie recipes made every week because if it says in the house, I eat it and well...that hasn't really been a good problem to have. I am also really good at making new new things and not sitting down and blogging them. I'll never make it as a professional blogger that's for sure!

Never the less, I made this week easy on myself. I used my loaf pan and almonds. I thought it came out great. The two pieces you see cut in the picture are all the were consumed in this house; one for me and one for my husband. (I have to at least taste test it right?!) I then wrapped it right up and put in the freezer. I'm planning to mail it to my brother in college.

This week's host was Erin of When In Doubt...Leave It At 350. You can find the recipe on her blog.

PS. If you came look for a Coconut Tea Cake, come back next week. We had the option of choosing either with the Easter holiday coming up.

Your loaf looks great. I know the pain of having accidentally ate most of the dessert for that week. I have been giving mine away. Thanks for baking with me. I will be posting this next week, recipe and all :)

I like the loaf idea. I'll try it next week. I need to get my treats out of the house too. Not a bad problem I guess.

I can't wait to make this next week! And I'm never gonna make it as a professional blogger either! Oh well!

Great looking loaf and I love almond and chocolate!

One of the nice things about picking up a second job is having lots of people to pass the goodies I keep baking on to! :)

Hey - I made mine in a loaf and it turned out great! We "loaf-makers" need to stick together. It looks fantastic - it truly is my favorite "marbled" cake now!

your loaf looks delicious and your brother is lucky :). I decided to skip this one and made the coconut tea cake today. Dang, wishing I didn't skip, everyone is loving it. :)
