TWD - All in One Holiday Bundt Cake

It's my favorite time of the year! This week especially. My birthday is Wednesday and Thanksgiving is Thursday and all that food we can consume!! Happy Birthday to Me!

On our Tuesdays with Dorie group, we had the option of posting our recipes this month in any order we chose. This week I am posting the All in One Holiday Bundt Cake chosen by Britin of The Nitty Britty. Use this link to jump over to her website to get the recipe. This is one you do not want to miss. It is called all in one for a good reason - it has everything but the kitchen sink in it! While I thought the cake would taste more pumpkiney (is that a word?), it really tasted more like an apple cake to me. It is filled with pumpkin, apples, cranberries, pecans, and lots of yummy spices.



I took it Saturday night to my birthday bash at our dance club and everyone really enjoyed it. The comment I heard the most was how moist it was. My DH ate a big hunk of it this morning for breakfast with our Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes. You gotta love those! It was a huge hit at my house and with my friends. My good friend Janet made her famous brownies for me and they are always a hit as well.
the cake was NOT responsible for this behaviour however!! Just Matt and Nathan messing around. . . .

MOVIE NEWS: I can't end this blog without reporting on seeing New Moon. While I thought it was way better than the first Twilight movie, it still was a bit slow. The special effects however were awesome. And so were Edward and Jacob. . . .oh to be a teenager again! I can't wait for the third movie to come out in June.

HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!

And New Moon was amazing, I loved it. You're right: Jacob looks really buff, but I'm still on Team Edward ;)

Happy Birthday . . . one day early. I love the pictures that you posted -- it looks like everyone was having a really good time.
The cake was so tasty, and I bet it was even better with the pumpkin spice latter. That sounds like a heavenly combination.
