Chocolate, almonds and ginger bundt cake (Cake de chocolate,almemdras y jengibre)






As many times I started with a recipe but ended up changing
a few things or ingredients.

BTW this recipe would be called Gluten free because it does not have wheat flour only baking powder and almonds meal.
oh well what can I say ?
I love bundt cakes!

 Really is a  chocolate bundt cake  dipped in chocolate and almonds and it's delicious.

And yes baking make me really happy especially when you are living difficult times.
With all the love for you who read me and love my recipes.
