Orange Cardamom Bundt Cake

Happy National Bundt Cake Day!!!  What?  You didn’t know about it?  Well obviously you have not been following The Food Librarian as she’s made her way thru 30 days of bundt cakes leading up to this momentous day!  I had a lot of fun following her journey… and I give her mad props for baking 30 different bundt cakes in the past month.  You go girl :)  Her perseverance inspired me to plan on baking a bundt cake ON National Bundt Cake Day (Nov 15) in tribute to her efforts!  She made quite a variety of different bundt’s and each of them sounded absolutely delicious.  This made it terribly hard to decide on which one I would make.  Maybe it should be chocolate (DH and the kids love chocolate).  Maybe it should be fruity (you know I love lemon!!).  Maybe it should be seasonal (it IS November  so perhaps pumpkin).  I pondered her list trying to decide when over and over it seemed one intrigued me more than the others… the Cardamom Vanilla bundt.  Being a Daring Baker I fell in love with the spice cardamom way back when we made a danish braid… and especially when it is paired with the flavor orange.  Not sure why but it’s a combination that just does it for me!  So for today… in honor of National Bundt Cake day… I present the Orange Cardamom Bundt!

Cran-Apple Crisps

This week was my turn to host Tuesdays with Dorie!  While I haven’t been baking a lot lately, I surely was not going to miss my turn in the rotation :)  When I initially joined TwD it seemed like my turn was so far far faaaaaar away but now it’s here and I chose Dorie’s recipe for Cran-Apple Crisps. It seemed like a no-brainer to me as I love both of these fruits and using cranberries and apples seemed so perfect for the autumn weather most of the United States is experiencing :)
