mocha-walnut marbled bundt cake

Two bundts in a row– I am a lucky girl!  I made this Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake for our Easter dinner.  Last week’s Coconut Tea Cake went unadorned, but for this one, I stirred up a quick chocolate sour cream frosting (thinned out with a little coffee leftover from making the cake batter), so my springtime pastel hundreds and thousands would have something to stick to.

Chocolate, coffee and ground walnuts all in one moist cake– what’s not to like?  It’s tasty, it’s easy, and I’m glad that Erin of When in Doubt…Leave it at 350 picked it for TWD.

I have jury duty today.  Perhaps a little snack-sized piece of this will find its way into my tote…

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read When in Doubt…Leave it at 350.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
