My bundt pans are with my vanilla beans. I hope they are having a fun time. Partying it up. I really didn’t need a third bundt pan. Well, no one ever needs a third bundt pan. It wasn’t in the budget this week, so no bundt pan.
I had a busy weekend planned, including a hike to the peak of Mt. Baldy (Mount San Antonio), so I made the cake on Friday night. I made half a recipe and used my 8×8-inch square pan. In the middle, I added a cinnamon-sugar layer. Before I left for the hike on Saturday morning, I cut up the cake and left notes for the family: “Okay to eat” and “Do not touch, for pictures”. I realized I needed notes after my mother ate some of my milano cookies before I had a chance to take pictures.
The cake was delicious and enjoyed by all and quickly disappeared once I gave free-reign on all of it.
Thank you to Mary of The Food Librarian who chose the Classic Banana Bundt Cake as this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. She is another Southern California food-blogger like me and she often has great looking bundt cakes and little action figures in her posts (unlike me). I really want some of those action figures. Oh, and bundt cakes. Check out her blog if you would like this week’s recipe or buy Dorie Greenspan’s Baking…From My Home to Yours.
