Nutella Marble Bundt
This Is It documentary on Friday and it was really good. The concert would have been awesome. The documentary is very well done, and it breaks your heart to know that the crew and dancers lost their dream too with Michael's passing. They all worked really hard to create an amazing show. My friend, who I literally dragged to the movie, was very impressed too. I highly recommend seeing it in a movie theater because it needs to be, like Michael himself, larger than life. Hurry, it's only in theaters for a couple weeks.
Well, during the movie you catch Michael saying something like, This is why we have rehearsals.
On my project of posting 30 Bundts in 30 days, there ain't time for a dress rehearsal. Thus, my imperfect Nutella Bundt. :)
1. Made Martha Stewart's Basic Yellow Cake batter. This makes enough for one 8-inch (one layer) cake and you can multiply it as needed.
2. In a small bowl, mix 1/3 cup Nutella with 1 large egg together to loosen the Nutella mixture. Take 1/3 of the yellow cake batter and mix it with the Nutella. This is the Nutella batter you'll swirl into the cake. (Remember, this is enough for a small Bundt...if you were going to use a regular 12-cup Bundt, I would use 3/4 - 1 c Nutella and 1 egg).
I see things in my Bundts. Oh dear.
I threw some melted chocolate on top (to cover up the missing layer of cake) and I would totally NOT do this again. It was just too sweet. I think a quick glaze of powdered sugar and milk or just a dusting of powdered sugar would work too.
I'm going to work on this one in the "off season" when I've recovered from the Bundt project! :) hee hee.
The countdown is ON, people! Only 14 more days until National Bundt Day! You ready?! Come back tomorrow for another Bundt... - mary the food librarian
