The Love Bundt

It's not just a bundt cake. It's a Bundt Cake.

It's a perfect-classic recipe Rich Yellow Bundt Cake with a Zesty Citrus Glaze.

It's an experience.

And it is loaded with a secret ingredient: Love.


After preparing the batter, we saved the best mix-in for last. Each one of us put our hand to our heart, and thought our best love-thoughts about each member of our family, what we love best about them, one at a time- a secret thought we didn't say out loud. First Daddy, then Mommy, then Grace, Patience, Lily and Hudson. We put all those love-thoughts into our hand, then rolled them into a nice love-ball, and each one took their turn putting their loveliest love thoughts into the batter, while I gently folded them in.

I'm not joking. We actually did do this.

Because that's just the kind of nut-case sentimentality I wax on these children regularly.

Is it weird that I remember the post you wrote about your Bundt pan?

Also, what a sweet secret ingredient.

And, the recipe isn't posted? That was probably just an oversight!

That cake looks perfect!! I'm so envious - mine never turn out that nice :) Perhaps I am not putting enough Love in them - I'm going to get working on that . . . thanks for the tip, Megan!
