Tuesdays With Dorie – Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake

by Jessica on March 30, 2010

Mocha Walnut Marbled Bundt

It seems that apologies are in order, since for the last two weeks, all I’ve posted are TWD recipes. Don’t get me wrong… I love my TWD time, but I’ve got so many other things that are just begging to be made (and posted!). However, C’s here for about a week and I find that whenever he’s in town, my baking tends to lag. We’re always spending time with friends, having dinner with the parents or frequenting our favorite local haunt, City Limits. I guess that’s okay, though, seeing as how he lives 1,300 miles away and I see him MAYBE once a month (if I’m lucky!).

I did have an hour or two last night to make this week’s choice, Dorie’s Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake. It was an excellent little dessert to follow the burgers that C grilled for us. And it would’ve been perfect (just like Ms. Greenspan suggests) with a scoop of ice cream, which unfortunately, I didn’t have on hand. I think I hear a ‘stop at the store on the way home’ calling me… 😉

This week’s recipe is actually Coconut-Tea Cake, but since it seems like such a perfect Easter dessert, some of us have switched up weeks. Erin of When in Doubt…Leave it at 350 should have the Bundt cake recipe on her site next Tuesday (if not today)!

Wow, it looks delicious. I think I must bake it next week. The Coconut Tea Cake was delish.

I wasn’t sure I was going to make this, but these pictures are making me reconsider. I don’t want to push my bundt luck–the coconut one was great.

This looks FANTASTIC! I have the butter out on the counter softening so I can make this, and seeing how great yours looks makes me want to make it now. I love your marbling!

Wow your cake looks lovely! Call me crazy, but I wasn’t really that excited about making this for next week. But seeing your pictures has convinced me otherwise! I think I might make it tomorrow…;-)

Wow, your marble skills are fabulous!! Marbling always gives me a hard time! Your bundt cake turned out really well – mine always has a really rounded top…

Your marbling looks perfect Jessica! I stink at marbling so I’m sort of dreading attempting it again next week for this cake 🙂 Glad to hear this one is yummy!

Your marbling looks uber perfect — I’m so jealous! I hope you have fun with C in town. The distance thing is so hard, but it definitely makes you appreciate the time you have together.

This cake looks like the perfect cake to enjoy with friends on a beautiful day…I think that if a little chocolate was added into this concoction, it will be truly decadent ;]

What a beautiful cake…your marbling is the best, it looks like art! Would be such fun to get a piece and just marvel at the designs in your marbling, comparing them with the next slice, etc. Very nice.
