Salted Caramel is poured over a sweet, vanilla bundt for a delicious autumn dessert!
Can you believe it’s time for this month’s #BundtBakers??! Where did the time go?! It seems like yesterday I made that Harvest Bundt…which may explain why I am late in submitting this month’s bundt. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it for the official group this month, but it’s still a recipe worth sharing.
I knew immediately that I wouldn’t, for anything, miss out on this event. After looking at the calender I realized I only had a few days left to get my act together and come up with a bundt with caramel. This month almost had me stumped because I had a million ideas going through my head. I didn’t know which direction to go, so ultimately, I decided, when in doubt – be classic.
Since the theme this month is caramel, I wanted to make it the focus of the dessert. I decided on a very classic vanilla cake adapted from Giada for the base. Topped with a thick, sticky, beautiful drizzle of homemade caramel then topped with bits of coarse sea salt.
So, without further adieu, here is my recipe for my #BundtBakers Classic Vanilla Bundt Cake with a Salted Caramel Drizzle. It’s surprisingly easy too…so go ahead and give it a go this weekend ;D
What’s dessert without coffee??
To go along with today’s cake, Living the Gourmet is pleased to present Café Amani from the OneCup Project.
The One Cup Project was founded on the premise that purchases have power, and the belief that consumers would use that power to make a real and tangible difference for good in the world – if given the opportunity.
To that end, One Cup has partnered with a variety of organizations, including USAID, to enable One Cup to donate two dollars to World Vision for each bag of coffee purchased via its online catalogue. That donation is then multiplied by 5.5 via its range of partnerships, resulting in a twelve dollar donation per bag of coffee, meaning that each purchase, in essence, is matched dollar for dollar.
Living the Gourmet had the opportunity to sample One Cup’s Café Amani, an award winning coffee blended from Sumatran, Columbian, and Indonesian beans. A medium bodied coffee featuring mild acidity, the coffee features hints of chocolate and wild berry, and, true to its description, carries a slight peat flavor, which I found to be most notable in its aftertaste.
The One Cup online store also features a range of other Fair Trade coffees from South America, Indonesia, and Africa, in a variety of blends and roasts. The store also offers a number of BPA free medical-grade stainless steel travel mugs, as well as coffee presses.
Given the quality of their coffee, and their mission-statement, Living the Gourmet is pleased to recommend OneCup.org to its readers.
