I like big Bundts and I cannot lie

This almond cake is the best kind of cake: a chewy on the inside, crispy-crusted, no-need-for-frosting Bundt. I am going to bring some to our playdate this morning to show off my mad baking skillz.

Almond Cake Recipe

I got the idea from Amy and the recipe from the inside of the can of almond "filling." We enjoyed it with strawberries after a dinner of chicken and dumplings. Before supper, I told Bella to sit down for Family Dinner, and she looked at the three bowls of steaming soup and said, "Time for a family smoke!"

Other happenings:
  • Making lists of things we need for Baby. Diapers, formula, nuks....
  • Trying to remember what it's like to sleep with the windows open, listening to frogs and birds while I lie in bed.
  • Working on a little green baby sweater, and kind of not liking it too much.
  • Looking forward to the upcoming Knitting Girls field trip to the Swedish Institute knits exhibit.
  • Thinking I should probably start our taxes.
  • Ironing my yards of fabric for an All-Day Tote.

  2. I had a whole big thing....

    I like big Bundts and I can not lie
    You other mothers can't deny
    That when a cake walks in with an itty bitty hole
    And all round thing in your face
    You get sprung (from the pan)

    ... but when I sang it for Brent he said it was too dirty.
