A very easy and delicious dessert.

You all know how much I love to bake, especially cheesecakes and tarts, but I have to admit I never bake regular cakes.  They always seem to come out looking like ski slopes requiring a lot of icing on one side to even them out.   But, I have always wanted to try my hand at a Bundt Cake and I just did.  Much to my surprise, it worked.

Using our friends, Kirk and Sue as guinea pigs, I found the following recipe on and made it.  Guess what, it came out great.  It really was good, light and fluffy.   So, I wanted to give it to all of you to try.  To serve it, I mixed fresh berries with a little sugar, let them set for 1 hour and served on top.  Yum, yum…Bet whipped cream would be good also.
