Chocolate Chip Almond Cake

Chocolate Chip Almond Cake

I really like Bundt cakes. If I’m making a cake, odds are it’s a Bundt. I think it comes from my poor frosting skills. I am so bad at that. Anyway, I came across this recipe the other day while browsing Nestle’s recipe site. It actually has one of those contrived names that usually turn me off a recipe, so I’ve renamed it for the sake of my own preference.

This makes a lot of batter. I filled my Bundt pan pretty full and it almost overflowed. Luckily, it didn’t become a catastrophe, and instead I got a beautiful, really tall cake. There is a glaze for the cake, too, but I skipped it. The cake is good enough without it, but I’m sure the glaze would be delicious.

    This is not really related to this recipe. Just found your site by accident & wondered if you or someone out there might be able to help me. Halloween nite I was watching the food network channel & during the commercial break a little recipe “blerp” came on that started talking about making a bundt cake in layers with what looked like chocolate chips & peanut butter chips in the middle. Believe there were 3 layers. Batter, then chips & so on. Then you mixed together some kind of milk or white substance – not sure if it was evap milk or sweet cond milk, brown sugar & not sure what else? And microwaved it. When cake was cooled you had a caramel glaze to put on top. I had the TV turned down to where I almost couldn’t hear it. I can remember the announcer saying to go to foodnetwork.com/GE for the recipe. I even wrote it down. Sure I probably heard wrong. But little letters also came swirling by that spelled out “food bytes” or food byte. Not really positive on that now either. I’ve spent more hours than I care to admit trying to find that recipe!!!! It sounded & looked so good! I’ve tried every kind of “verbage” I can think of & just cannot find it. I’m about ready to write a letter to foodnetwork!:) Just wondered if you’d ever seen anything similar to this or have heard of it?? I know they used two different kind of baking chips. So, the lighter one could have been butterscotch too, for all I know. But if you or anyone out there saw this, knows the name of the recipe or has a copy, I would be so very grateful. Not really that big a deal if you or no one does either. Just thought I’d take a chance & ask.

    Thank you so much,
