Let’s do cake this Monday morning, more specifically a chocolate bundt cake with sprinkles and crushed malt balls. Yeah, it’s a bit over the top with sugar, but sometimes, I like my sweets that way, This is one of them.
I love the festive bright color pop of this cake. The sprinkles make me smile, the crushed malt balls kind of beg you to pick at them before the first slice is cut and the cake itself has a dense and moist crumb that’s full of chocolate flavor.
It’s the kind cake that makes you want to pour a glass of milk or coffee and put your feet up and lounge while you eat it. Okay, so maybe that’s just me, but that’s exactly what I did last night for dinner.
