Chestnut Praline Coffee Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

This Christmas cake does not disappoint. While it is not difficult but it is a bit time consuming. Hint: Don’t start baking this cake at your bedtime. Also, the Praline Sauce requires patience. Just keep on whisking until it liquifies into a sauce. Once the bourbon and heavy cream are added, it turns into a lump in the pan. Don’t worry, it thins with time and patience and perfect to add the chopped chestnuts.

Peanut Butter and Jam Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Well, now that I have tasted it, all I have to say is Holy Cow, this cake is a winner. I do caution you to be careful of your baking time. You don’t want to overbake it. This little nugget would also go in my comfort foods list. One bite takes you back. It is very reminiscent of childhood, if you like peanut butter of course. Either creamy or chunky would be equally delish. This recipe produces a great tasting, easy to make dessert or lunchtime delight. Just add cold milk or, in my case, a lovely cup of tea.

This lovely cake is not at all difficult and the bundt version bakes up beautifully. I can attest to the flavor, it’s perfect. I have to save a piece for my Home Health Nurse. It was baking when she arrived today and commented on it so I promised to save her a piece.
