Make this!


We had company over {wow, totally sounding like my mom in 1973 tonight!} this weekend.
I wanted to make a festive dessert but lacked the time {or energy} for 
laborious Christmas cookies......I am saving that for later this week.

While doing a simple search on the internet, I came up with this oh-so festive bundt
cake recipe.  Not only does this pretty cake impress, it also tastes delicious.

I knew I had to share the recipe with all of you!



Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake
{courtesy of food.com}

1 package devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup sugar
1 package {4 ounce} instant chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 {8 ounce} container of sour cream
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup coarsely crushed hard peppermint candies

Heavily grease and flour a 12 cup bundt pan and set aside.  Combine first seven
ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat at low speed until combined.  Pour mixture in 
prepared bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or till a toothpick
inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool pan for 15 minutes then remove cake
from pan and cool entirely on wire rack.
For frosting, stir together powdered sugar and enough milk to make a dribbling
glaze consistency.  Drizzle frosting over cake and sprinkle with peppermint candies.



May the peace and joy of the season be found in your home!

  10. I have made this for years and it is a favorite of everyone's! I got it out of Southern Living. I have a question for you. How do you get it so chocolatey looking? Mine looks marbled because of the flour. Do you have a good way to do it? I don't remember having trouble when I first made it years ago, but my last few look awful. Taste good, but look awful!
