Toffee Coffee Cake Surprise: Baked Sunday Mornings

Here we go again, the Baked group is baking a coffee cake this week.  
It was an odd way to make it...anyway, I thought took the butter, sugars, flour and vanilla and put it in your mixer and mixed it until it resembled sand, then added the eggs and sour cream.   

 My batter was very thick but I went ahead with it anyway...I greased the pan really well and layered in the batter and the filling. It looked really good. I got it out of the oven, It still looked great so I let it sit for 30 minutes then ran a knife around it to loosen it, as instructed. 

 I flipped the bundt pan over and only 2/3rds of the cake came out.  
I dug out the remainder of the cake and patched it up the
 best I could but it was not a pretty sight. 

 so sad

Yeah, I got a surprise alright! 
it was drizzle time! 

Instead of just dusting it with powdered sugar,  
 I made a brown sugar glaze and drizzled it with that then melted some chocolate and gave it another drizzle.

It made it look a whole lot better!  

I also took the time to make the toffee no surprises there!  

Turned out nice

The cake? Well, it tasted good... it was nice and moist with a rich caramel flavor.  I cut a few pieces and wrapped up the rest and put it in the freezer to use for later...hopefully it freezes well! 

Until next time...
Hopefully the other bakers had better luck! You can check it out here.

Next up is Cherry Almond Crisp!  
Now that sounds like my kind of recipe!


  1. Wow! That went from disaster to amazing. So beautiful. I am excited about cherry almond crisps too!

  2. Nice work, I would have had no idea you had problems with it! It looks fantastic!

  3. I'm sure we've all been there with Bundts-- I hold my breath every time I flip one over. I thought about making a glaze-- yours looks really fun and totally worked to cover up the patching. Really nice save, Chelly!

  4. I had the same issue with my bundt! I don't think 30 mins is enough for the cake to rest in the pan...I think it should probably be totally cooled before trying to take it out. Will try that again next time - because this was so good I'll definitely make it again!

  5. What a great save! When I saw your comments on other blogs, I expected a disaster, so when I saw your first photo, I couldn't imagine what had gone wrong because your cake looked great! I'm sure it tasted just delicious, too!

  6. I think your glaze and drizzle look terrific! Fabulous!
