Bourbon, Bitters & Blood Orange
How do you know you’re a truly obsessive baker? When you sip a delicious new cocktail and your first thought is, “These flavors would be even better in a cake!” That’s what happened when I discovered the explosively tasty combination of bourbon, blood orange, and bitters recently—and the result is this perfectly moist and fluffy Bundt. Developing the recipe took some trial and error: On my first attempt, I burned the cake. And then I had to experiment with the flour to fat ratio to get just the right texture. But try, try again paid off: This spiked sweet is sophisticated, indulgent, and a seriously winning winter dinner party dessert.
