I love the Oscars. I try to see all the nominated films, make guesses as to who will win (dust off shelf space, Hathaway, Day-Lewis & Affleck!) and of course, eat. This year I decided to skip my usual bottle o’ bubbly (because I was too pooped after walking around the B’More Health Fair) and stick to a nice red that I have at home. But I need a dessert! Hello, Bundt. It’s a mix, but I decided to sprinkle some of pecan bits on to make it more festive. I plan on topping slices (because who eats just one slice of cake?) with cherry pie filling. Because cherry pie filling is delicious. However, now that I see how nicely this cake rests on the pecans – no soggy bits to scrape off the rack – I may do this more often.
