This group, Baking With Dorie, was founded by two bakers who similarly wanted to join but couldn't. We will post twice monthly, which is a perfect pace. I just told The Family that I needed to cut back on sweets, but now I'm eating my words and eating this cake! The recipe can be found on Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog.
I was pretty sure I would like The Brown Sugar Bundt Cake recipe, as it included nut flour, butter and buttermilk. It called for pears and prunes too, which was too autumnal for me. Instead, I substituted 1 cup toasted, chopped almonds and used almond flour as the nut flour of choice.
Lots of brown sugar.
Almond flour adds interesting flavor.
still, there were issues.
I was wrong about liking the cake; I LOVE it. Even in its broken and uncooperative form. The buttery, almond flavored cake has a beautiful texture, slightly dense and moist. It feels more like a breakfast or tea cake than a dessert cake, but any time of day, it's delicious cake.
