TWD: All In One Holiday Bundt Cake


The final Tuesdays With Dorie treat for the month of November is an All In One Holiday Bundt Cake. It’s a cake that encompasses all holiday goodness in one cake: apples, pecans, cranberries, pumpkin, and ginger. I like the concept of making a dessert or dish with a lot of enticing ingredients, possibly on the side of excess, and hoping it works out. In fact, the same day I made this cake, I went out to dinner and there was a chicken breast with caramelized brussels sprouts, chestnuts, fall apples, and chestnut- potato puree on the menu – all things I like, but a lot on one plate. I ordered it, and the combination was fantastic, just like this cake!



This cake rated an 8 for Deliciousness and a 2.5 for Effort, giving it an EDR of 3.2. Many thanks to Britin of The Nitty Britty for selecting this fun, seasonal cake. You can find the recipe here on Britin’s site and visit the TWD blogroll to see what everyone else baked this week.

It's definitely the melange of flavours that gives this cake an extra boost. I hope to make it again over the holidays.
Glad you rated it so highly. Lovely photos!

I haven't tried my cake yet - but based on the rave reviews, it should be good. Although the vet staff will be enjoying it this morning, not me!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Your cake looks wonderful! I was worried about too much of a good thing when making this one as well, but ended up really loving it.
