Hello! How are you doing? We hope you liked our first post.
Today we bring you another tasty recipe, perfect to share with friends and family.
The past week has been crazy. As the rainy season starts, people tend to use the public transportation more. As a result, all bus stops are always crowded!
Opera, our awesome black cat, was sterilized a few days ago. We were very lucky to contact an organization that helps animals in the streets or living with families like us, that can’t afford a procedure in a clinic. We’ll probably share a picture soon.
Without a car, a simple travel to the place of the operation and back was a drama, running to avoid the water and then the suffocating heat. Certainly the longest five hours of our lives.
As the weather changes, some of my favorites fruits start appearing in the streets, strawberries, passion fruit and a lot of avocados. But it also means oranges, my mother’s best flavor for cakes, is now gone.
We just can’t say goodbye to them before making something special, and this bundt cake full of orange freshness and flavor is just what she needs. With orange zest and juice, be aware it just get even more delicious after a day or two.
Furthermore, another good thing about this bundt cake:
If you are a fan of drowning everything sweet on coffee, Ricardo said he loves how this full flavor orange bundt cake holds its shape and the scent pops even more.
My mother was highly pleased with this recipe, and asked us repeatedly to make this cake again soon.
Finally, a dust of powdered sugar is all this beauty needs to be the star of any event.
