It's time for Bundt Bakers..................

Sneha of Sneha's Recipe is hosting this month's event and invited us to bake a bundt that contains applesauce.  Let's see what everyone is sharing today.......

Birthday Cake

I baked up this cake for my friend, Karen, when I invited her over for her birthday dinner.  When she arrived it was sitting in the pan cooling, waiting to be turned onto the rack to finish cooling.  She watched as I turned the cake onto the rack, being pleased as punch that it released cleanly and was beautiful.

Then, right before our very eyes, the insides started leaking out through the hole in the bundt.   I quickly put the pan back over the bundt, flipped it over and stuck it back in the oven, with my fingers crossed, praying it wasn't completely ruined.

Success!!  I am happy to report that it turned out just fine with another half an hour in the oven.  We enjoyed it and Karen took a piece home with her.  A couple of days later, we had a casual poolside dinner with our friends, The Luths, and Frank's sister, Roz, and niece, Danielle. 

Applesauce Spice Cake

After dinner I brought out the remaining half of a cake and, as often happens with spice cakes, it was even tastier than the first night.  Roz asked me to send the recipe to her.  On Wednesday morning, when I awoke, she had sent me an email saying "Wendy-Please send over the recipe.  That cake was great....."
