I've been looking forward to this cake since I made my first reverse marble during the test bake. I love, love, LOVE, Rose's sour cream bundt cakes. Dense, rich, melt-in-your-mouth cakey goodness.
Here's my test bake:
Now do you understand why I've been eagerly waiting to bake it again?
Sadly, I discovered that this isn't a toddler-friendly cake making experience. The batter must be layered in the pan in a specific way with specific amounts, as quick as possible. What this means is that the toddler decided he needed me to pick him up right as I started layering batter into the pan. So I layered the batter into the pan with a crying child standing next to me. Oh well, not all baking experiences will be fun!
Surprisingly, the marbling came out pretty good.
And it tastes fantastic.
The chocolate glaze is actually more white chocolate than dark chocolate, and somehow tastes like a mellow milk chocolate. I tried to wait until it was cool enough but I couldn't. So the glaze doesn't lok that wonderful. But it is yummy.
How many more ways can I say I love this cake? Here's a quote from my test bake:
"Oh how I love a sour cream bundt. Dense, moist, tight tender crumb, with a little tang. This cake is everything I love about cake. I was worried the ganache glaze would be too much or overpower everything but it didn't. All that white chocolate in the glaze keeps it from being too rich or heavy. Who knew?"
