Mocha Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake - Tuesdays with Dorie
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Erin of When in Doubt…Leave it at 350 picked Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake on pages 180 and 181 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Whoo hoo. A Bundt without coconut. As you know, I Like Big Bundts and this was a very pretty one!

A swirl of chocolate and espresso is the dark layer, and a rich vanilla pound cake is the white part. Ground walnuts are in the batter giving it a nice texture and depth of flavor.

I ground up my walnuts in a food processor. The recipe calls for 1/4 c of coffee and 1 teaspoon espresso powder. I don't have coffee lying around so I added 1/4 c hot water and 1 1/2 t espresso powder; the "mocha" wasn't that strong so I would increase that next time or be sure to use brewed coffee.

Ah, a perfect bundt cake! I always think of the My Big Fat Greek Wedding scene with the bundt cake - too funny!

Di said... [Reply to comment]

Looks great, as always, Mary! Mine actually has a lot in common with yours--I used the same pan, it looks like. And I did the extra espresso & water substitution for the coffee, too. =)

Tracey said... [Reply to comment]

Beautiful bundt Mary - I'm sure you were psyched about this week's selection :)

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

A perfect cake! Lovely marbling and texture.

Jess said... [Reply to comment]

What a pretty bundt (and cake stand)! I think an extra coffee kick is a good choice with this one.

Katrina said... [Reply to comment]

Awesome job, as always! The chocolate in the slice of cake almost looks like a silhouette of someone. ;)

Susan said... [Reply to comment]

Gorgeous! I would kick up the coffee next time too, and I used coffee and espresso.

I made your chocolate cinnamon bundt last night for friends who've just had a baby and they loved it! I think the mocha walnut marbled bundt could be next...
