Isn’t baking just magical? You assemble a series of random ingredients into an undiscernable mass, only to have it transform into the most beautiful, delicious thing when you apply heat to it.
I used the Nordicware Rose bundt pan for this cake. It just required something special. If you have ever baked with one of these pans, then you know the labor of love it is to butter it, with all of its nooks and crannies. It left me a lot of time to reflect on a time in 2nd grade when we made butter in our class. We used hand beaters, and passed it around the desks. I mean it’s practically child labor, and I didn’t even get a chance to taste it. And here I am, 30 years on, elbows deep in butter! She who laughs last, laughs best. 🤔
I loved this cake so much. The texture is like a cloud, and is similar to angel food cake (a little more close textured, but…). And I loved the little crispy sugar bits throughout the cake! We served it with some Cappucino Gelato made by Adelheidi’s, an organic and natural gelato and ice cream shop in Naples, FL. Yum!
