Here we go again, Hi to all !!
I'm a little embarrassed to say that I was sick with a terrible cold and bronchitis, finally after taking antibiotics (I didn't want to)Im better.
I don't want to bore anyone, but it was. A week I hardly knew about me.
But here I am and I made one of my favorites cakes : A cherry almond bundt cake . It doesn't cost me so much even though my arm still hurts to beat.
I also recommend this recipe cause I love Bundt cakes :)
This cherry almond bundt cake is a traditional pound cake filled with cherry pie filling with a cream cheese glaze.
Thank you for the greetings and love and those who ask how I am, I appreciate it very much! Hugs for all!!
