This Apple Oatmeal Butterscotch Bundt Cake is filled with shredded Honeycrisp and butterscotch chips and topped with an apple cider glaze.
So my favorite show is back on.
If you have no idea what I’m talking abou then I’m sad for you.
Because you are missing out.
Great British Bake Off is back on.
Just like the NHL (which the Tampa Bay Lightning won the cup this year if you are wondering) the bakers are in a bubble.
Unlike previous years they don’t get to go home each week after their weekend in the tent.
What I want to know though is how much practice time they get.
Because for some it could be a great advantage not to be home and have distraction.
And others it can be a downfall if you don’t get to practice as much as you do at home.
The first weeks show stopper was a hard one.
They had to make a cake bust of someone they admired.
Those that have seen my decorating skills know why I make so many Bundt cakes. 😀
I tried to figure out who I would want to make a bust of and I landed on Carrie Fisher.
Not as Princess Leia but as herself.
I mean not that she wasn’t awesome as Leia.
But I admired Carrie Fisher the woman.
Especially in her older years.
Where she dragged her dog Gary everywhere and if he wasn’t allowed to go with she wasn’t coming.
I remember her taking him on Good Morning America.
In the interview she says the comment that I live…”I think with my mouth”.
Meaning she says things as she is thinking them.
And well, I tend to do that too.
Rarely in life will you wonder where you stand with me. 😛
She held nothing back and was immensely vocal about the double standards in Hollywood when it came to age.
You know how you see a 60 plus year old man with a 22 year old woman and that’s fine.
But you never see a middle aged or older woman with younger men.
I mean there are a couple movies but on average that is not the norm.
And she was never one to shy away about talking about the ridiculous standards woman have (and men too) with regards weight.
Which as a body positive person I greatly appreciate.
This Apple Oatmeal Butterscotch Bundt Cake has nothing to do with anything I talked about…you know, like most things on this blog.
But it’s one of the flavor combo my husband really likes.
At least the oatmeal and butterscotch chip combo.
He liked the apple and apple cider addition as well.
This cake was a big hit with him.
P.S. It’s a great day to buy my cookbook.
And if you preorder you get a bonus!
