I never thought I’d make a cake that would call for about 50 Oreo cookies in the recipe, but here we are. And, I don’t regret the decision at all. This, what I am deeming, The Ultimate Oreo Bundt Cake recipe is one of those delicious accidents that happen in the kitchen from time to time.
This fruitcake is a classic Christmas recipe in my house. When I was younger, I’d help my mom mix giant bowls of this batter so we could make enough loaves to send to just about all of our family members. For my mom, she found so much joy and pride in making this cake – it’s like she was sharing more than a piece of cake…she was sharing a piece of her memories with everyone around her.
This is one of my mom’s many classic dessert recipes. Just about any time we’d have friends or family come over to our home, we’d tidy up the house and then the last thing she’d do is bake this Lemon Pound Cake so that the house would be full of its citrus-y, buttery aroma.
I grew up under two, distinct types of southern: the sweet tea and biscuits kind and the puttu and pazham type. So, it’s natural a lot of my food concoctions end up colliding with my cultural identities. Not to mention, I look for just about any excuse to add the Indian ingredient, cardamom, to a recipe.
