I feel like I should start referring to these posts as BAKED Sunday Afternoons, since I never seem to get my post together in time. Ahh well, such is life. I'm jumping back in this week after missing the last couple challenges. This was partly due to spending most of those weekends away from home, and partly that the two recipes didn't appeal to me that much. I'm not a fruit girl, so blackberry or peach pie didn't really make the cut of things-to-shove-into-the-48-hours-I-spent-at-home-in-three-weeks list.
But, anyway, on to this week's recipe -- Orange Olive Oil Bundt Cake. Unfortunately I can't even say that much about it yet. I made it this afternoon to serve as a dessert this evening. Even though it's in the Baked cookbook under 'Breakfast' I'm serving it after a spanish meal of paella, and I think the olive oil and citrus will pair nicely with the dinner. I wasn't all that excited about the cake to be honest. As I said, I'm not a fruit girl, and typically I don't go for citrus based flavors. So, I expected not to like it, but after tasting the batter I'm pretty intrigued. The olive oil really came through and the citrus was more of an afternote. We will see what the finished cake tastes like, but I have high hopes!
Head on over to BAKED Sunday Mornings to see everyone else's cakes and to get the recipe!
