Nutty, Chocolaty, Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake (Dorie Greenspan's recipe)
Nutty, Chocolaty, Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake (Dorie Greenspan's recipe)

I was never the student who skipped ahead to the next assignment, or finished the chapter before it was due. I was usually finishing up on my way to class.

But my love of the Bundt has put me ahead of the Tuesdays with Dorie group. We'll be baking for a few more years to get through all the recipes and I just couldn't wait because I was craving me another Bundt.

A sour cream cake batter is made and 1/2 the "swirl" added. The swirl is sugar, walnuts, bittersweet chocolate, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Dorie says to scoop the rest of the batter in the pan, dig a little trench and then place the rest of the swirl in the opening. Finally, cover it the best you can (it won't cover everything). I wasn't very good at this and might try to save more batter to place it on top of the swirl instead.

Just before a simple topping of powdered sugar rounds out this delicious Bundt.

Do you think it would be good without the nuts? My hubs is allergic and I do not need to be tempted with a whole cake for myself! It looks so good!

That looks great. I love a nice streusely bundt. I bet that would be great with a mocha glaze too - a real coffee cake.

Maria, It is yummy without the raisins or nuts. My co-worker can't eat nuts and seeds so I made her a mini cake sans the nuts and raisins - and she really liked it! - mary

I have a hard time believing as an librarian you weren't the most astute student. With the care you put into your culinary creations, I bet you were teacher's pet!

The swirl is gorgeous and I'm sure also delicious! Love the sour cream in it too.

Cute blog!

I checked the rules, and you're only allowed to bake ahead if you send a piece to all of your blogging friends. Just so you know. (Is this really the name of this cake? I hope so!)

Yum! I love raisins and chocolate together, and nutmeg is one of my favorite spices. Your cake looks gorgeous.

This bundt cake looks fabulous. No wonder you're skipping ahead of the TWD group! I actually had my Baking From My Home to Yours open to this bundt cake a couple of days ago, and now, I just have to make it. Yours looks so delicious!

So, now you get an as-yet undetermined week off!

Wow, this looks wonderful, I love the dark edges compared to the chocolate studded interior.
