    Buster's friend's Note:

    Found this tasty adaptation of a circa 1992 Gourmet magazine recipe on , a delightful blog up for an award for Best New Blog of 2009 on . Give it a look & see whether you'd give her a vote (I did along with a vote for for the esteemed lifetime achievement award). She's got some tasty recipes for sure. Anyone resurrecting the much maligned American Bundt cake gets a hat tip from me anytime. I plan to make this & halve it immediately after cooling cake but before spooning on topping - will add topping to each half with the best looking one going IMMEDIATELY to dear neighbor's home as I strongly suspect this could become a main meal substitute if allowed to remain in toto in our house, LOL.

      This cake was absolutely delicious, super moist and the topping was out of this world. Everyone enjoyed this wonderful cake. I replaced the white flour with spelt flour and it was great. I will definately keep this one in our favorites!! Thanks
