X'tra Good Apple Walnut Bundt Cake



This is a sugar dusted Apple bundt cake with a thin crunchy crust and a moist and nutty inside.  Made  with tart Granny Smith apples, chopped walnuts and a sprinkling of cinnamon, it was very aromatic.  The sweet smell of cinnamon and vanilla lingered in the kitchen for quite a while.

Incidentally, I am bringing this dish over to a picnic organised by Louise @  Months of Edible Celebrations.   Louise has been hosting this picnic game for many years and this is the first time that I'm going  to this picnic. Each participant will pick an alphabet and make something with the dish name starting with that alphabet and my chosen alphabet is " X" .. X'tra Good Apple Walnut Bundt Cake. As you can see my alphabet is 'X' as I'm rather late in participating.  But thanks to Louise, I managed to squeeze in my dish at the last minute.  The roundup of the picnic game will be on 1st July, 2013 at Louise's blog.

    1. Thank you, Angie. I notice that most of my Bundt cakes have a sort of a crunchy crust, maybe because of the thickness of the pan.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
