Today’s Baking with Dorie recipe for Brown Sugar Bundt Cake was chosen by Chaya of Chaya’s Comfy Cook Blog. Check out her blog for the recipe for this cake, or you can find it on page 179 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours.
For as much as I enjoy cake decorating, I do not enjoy frosting at all as it is way too sweet for me. I’m the girl who always asks for the middle piece of the cake to avoid the frosting. So, I was really excited about this frostingless cake! And, as is normal with Dorie’s recipes, I absolutely loved it! The recipe as written called for pears and prunes, but since the husband and I are not fans of either, I substituted apples and raisins. This was very simple to throw together…the most tedious part was cutting up the apples. The cake was so moist and the brown sugar flavor is divine. I will most certainly make this again!
This is the second recipe I’ve made with Chaya in the last several days (she also chose the Sloppy Joes recipe I made last week), and once again, she chose a winner! To see how the other BWD bakers did with this, check out the blogroll. In two weeks, we’ll be making the Milk Chocolate Mini-Bundt Cakes, which was chosen by yours truly! I cannot wait to try it!
