I do love baking bundt cakes. I’ve started collecting pans – I get a new one every year. I haven’t bought my new bundt pan for this year yet. I usually buy it as part of my Christmas celebrations but it just didn’t happen. I’m sure I’ll settle on one soon. As soon as I do I’ll share it. For today I’ll just share this cherry pistachio bundt cake recipe that I threw together.

How was it?

Cherry Pistachio Bundt Cake

I enjoyed this cake. I am a big fan of the cherry/pistachio combination and it played well together in this rich cake. It was a moist, tender cake as well. The cardamom and nutmeg added a really lovely hint of flavor and the chocolate was a perfect finish.
