Lime Bundt Cake

Lime Bundt Cake

Yeeeees, I said I had given up on the lime & yoghurt cake recipe… And I have. I never said I wasn’t going to try out a different recipe though!

So here we go. Sunday afternoon, coffee with our friends and lime bundt cake.

Recipe? Ah, there’s the rub. No such thing. I don’t even remember what went into the cake batter. I’m quite sure there were limes involved. But then that’s about it. (Not enough sleep, too many things I have to think about at the same time, not enough brain capacity. Sad story. But true.)

What’s more important: I really liked the cake. The texture was good; the taste of limes could have been slightly more intense but was still delightful.

And now I think I am going on a lime hiatus. In the next two weeks, I will probably have to do some more pumpkin baking to conclude my pumpkin fest, and I have three more ideas floating around in my weird little head. So stay tuned! :D


A Pundt Cake!

29 Oct


I love a good pun. A good pun can make your day so much better.

What I love even more though is a bad pun. The kind that makes you cringe at first but then it makes you laugh just because it’s such a bad pun.

In the past, I have been accused of coming up with the worst puns there are. However, I’d say that’s not true. I am not coming up with them, life is springing them on me! It’s not my fault at all!

So there I was, baking a mini walnut bundt cake for our German friend who
a) loves walnut cakes and
b) whose wife has just had their first baby.

The situation might seem innocent enough … No bad pun in sight? You might think so!

Mini Walnut Pundt Cake

(My apologies to the non-German speakers; you will simply have to accept that this one cannot be translated for you because the pun only works in German. You’re not missing out on much, though. ;)

And then I thought about how awkward this was going to be, writing about an untranslatable  German pun on an English blog, and I had actually already decided I was simply not going to post this cake at all.

Until …I had the idea for the title of this post.
What can I say. I do love them. :)
