Chocolate Mint Bundt
Made with Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips
Baked a Bundt and Bought a Car.
And yes, it does have New Bundt Smell (thanks JustJenn for making me laugh with that one!)
I'm turning 40 years old soon and my ride needed an upgrade. My 1999 Toyota Corolla has been good to me, but after hitting 180,000 miles, I thought it was time to celebrate my milestone birthday with a new car! This is my new 2010 Toyota Corolla LE.
Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt with no cinnamon and the addition of some peppermint extract and Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips.
JustJenn has a line of stationery and pins to celebrate the love of Big Bundts!
Nordic Ware Chrysanthemum Bundt Pan. I like the look of this pan, but because the center hole is pretty small, it sometimes take longer to bake the center than the edges. For this one, I put some foil over the pan during the last 10 minutes of baking. By the way, you know that all the calories escape through the hole in the center of the Bundt? Oh, yes. It's true :)
