Hot Cocoa Almond Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Life suddenly seems to got busy for me. I do took out time to cook, and bake. But, most of the time, I forgot to click the picture of these delicious dishes.

And then 1 day, I realized my readers are getting compromised because of my schedule. So, I  decided to bake an easy and special cake for my readers. And came around this event of Bundt Bakers. The theme this month, is Hot Chocolate. Well, chocolate is my all time favorite. I even carry, few chocolate in my lunch bag. When,I do not get time to eat lunch, and I am hungry, Chocolate works as a great energy booster for me.

This month's theme is Hot Chocolate, and is hosted by a wonderful cook and a baker, Tara, who also runs a blog, " Noshing with the Noland." Check out some delicious recipe here by her.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving Bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all of our lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest Board.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme or ingredient.

Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers can be found on our homepage.
