TWD - Nutty, Chocolaty, Swirly, Sour Cream Bunt Cake

Nutty, Chocolaty, Swirly, Sour Cream Bunt Cake is the choice for this weeks Tuesdays with Dorie.  Oh, how I wish that I had checked the P. & Q. before I baked this cake.  I would have had a much better cake.  I baked my cake for the full 60 minutes and it was a bit dry. I also lost quite a bit of the swirl.  That wonderful swirl wasn't covered completely by the batter and separated from the cake only to flake off when it was done. Boo.  On the bright side the cake came out of the pan without any problems.  My family still enjoyed the cake.  Thanks to Jennifer of Cooking for Comfort for picking this recipe which can be found here.  Stop by and check out her beautiful cake.

TWD Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins.  I love muffins.  They are quick and easy and the flavor combinations are endless. When my girls were growing up, Sunday breakfast always included muffins.  We loved mixing then up together and impatiently waiting for them to cook.  They never waited for them to cool before digging in.  Making these muffins really made me miss those days.

If you are a muffin fan like we are, you will love these muffins.  The have a great lemon taste and the sour cream makes them super moist.  Thanks so much to Betsy of A Cup of Sweetness for picking this great recipe. If you would like the recipe you can find it here.
