Classic Banana Bundt Cake with Nutella Frosting
Bundt cakes hold a special place in my heart. My Mama is a great cook, and I learned to cook from her. She can turn any mundane dish into something spectacular, but my Mama is no baker. One of my earliest memory is my Mama making a Pineapple Bundt Cake, and burning it (LOL), yet I remember it to be one of the best cake I've ever had. She told me that she was making it specially for me. Funny, that was the first and last time I remember her baking (LOL).
This is my first Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) entry, although, I have been reading most of the members' blogs for years now, and I have been using Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To Yours for sometime. Her recipe for the Perfect Party Cake is the bomb! There is a running joke among my circle of friends that if I make a version of the "Perfect Birthday Cake" for your birthday, you are in the "inner circle" of the circle.
I am excited with the recipe chosen by Mary of The Food Librarian. I have this Terra Cotta Bundt Pan I haven't used since I acquired it, and I want to see how it fares compared to the Metal and Silicone Bundt Pans. I also have overripe bananas in my counter I need not be wasting.. so all is good! Now I think I hear the Nutella calling...
Mise en Place (minus the yogurt, which, I almost forgot)

Drizzling yumminess over goodness!
