What goes better together than cherry and almond flavor!
I recently bought a bundt pan, so this recipe I found on Pinterest caught me eye:
Looks beautiful in the photo, doesn't it?
I made the batter:
I followed the directions perfectly - I taught culinary skills for years, so when I try a new recipe, I follow it to a "t". I greased my new pan very well, too! After cooling the cake for 20 min, and struggling to get the cake out of the pan, this is what I ended up with:
She's a beauty, isn't she:
So, I carefully lifted each broken piece and placed it on the top, where it should have been:
Then I made the glaze (that recipe was also a lousy one) and "glued" the cake together:
It's a good thing that this cake was just for us and not for any company!!
You are probably wondering how it tastes?
Well, the reason I am not sharing the recipe is because it is dry, and no one should go through all this craziness for a dry piece of cake!!
AND, see this lovely pan:
This is the second time I used it and had the "sticking" problem each time…so off to Goodwill it goes and hopefully someone else will have better luck than I!
I have tried quite a few recipes found on Pinterest and I am not sure if it is ME or not, but some are real lousy, or lacking flavor, or missing ingredients.
I feel like someone is playing a trick on me!
So if anyone has a great recipe for Cherry Almond Cake - please send it my way!
