Feed A Cold

When I was in 5th grade, I wrote a poem about being sick while I was in the infirmary waiting for my mom to come pick me up. To this day every time I get a cold that poem pops into my head. While I will (in the interest of my saving myself from complete and utter embarrassment) refrain from sharing this iambic masterpiece with the blogsphere, I will say that next to matzoh ball soup, a slice of Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake made this patient feel a whole lot better.

Even with my compromised sense of smell this cake tasted great and made me forget for a few minutes how crummy I felt. I used cocoa powder and hot water instead of coffee- I'm already sneezy and dopey, no need to add jumpy to the list.
Thanks Erin for this pick, it was a bright spot in my congested haze.

Yikes - feel better soon!

Your bundt looks perfectly marbled and moist. Kudos for baking while you're under the weather...it's now time for you to get under the covers and recuperate!

What a gorgeous bundt cake! There really is something about them that's always comforting.

Are you sure you won't share the poem? Came across a truly embarrassing story I wrote somewhere around third grade recently, and it's always nice to have company! Hehehehe!
