oops, I just saw that you said "not chocolate." Oh well, it's a good recipe to have in your collection.

Spumoni Cake

Here's another Bundt (or tube pan!) cake:

Spumoni Cake

8 ounces sour cream
3/4 cup cooking oil
4 eggs
1 (3 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding mix
cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon almond extract
green food coloring
1 small jar maraschino cherries, chopped
red food coloring
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
Glaze:
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. corn syrup

Mix together well the cake mix, sour cream, oil, eggs and vanilla pudding mix. Divide mixture into 3 bowls. To bowl 1, add: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1 tsp. almond extract and 5 drops green coloring. To bowl 2, add: 12 to 14 maraschino cherries, chopped, and 5 drops red coloring. To bowl 3, add: 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted. Pour into Bundt or ring pan; green, red and then chocolate in layers. (Do not stir or mix.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from pan and drizzle with glaze.
For Glaze: Stir all ingredients over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in 1 cup confectioners sugar. Drizzle over cake.

Thanks for starting this one Kyles....husband's new office also have a "bringing things in roster" although most are not homemade. This is going to be a very useful thread for me too!

And thanks for asking for whole cakes, I won't be able to be tempted, because they will be leaving my kitchen whole and untouched. Phew!

Ours is a baking team, so it has to be home made! That's one of the reasons for the "no chocolate rule".......I'm sure I am the only on this forum who can eat raw chocolate cake batter!!!

The recipes are great everyone!!! Can't wait to start baking again! I was going to sell all my cake tins on eBay, but I guess I'll be needing them now!

Uhuh, I have a friend who lost three stone having stopped licking out her mixing bowls! LOL. She also had the cupcake habit (Make a dozen, give ten!).

Is there a difference between a tube pan and a bundt pan? What about parfaits - Jello, etc? You can test the waters to see if it indeed has to be a sweet dish...and just how sweet "sweet" has to be. Banana bread is usually a good option, especially if you find a recipe that produces good, moist banana bread. Cookies travel well, or some kind of bar. I know they are not cakes but sometimes tradition can joyfully be broken - personally I think there is nothing better in the world than a well made, tollhouse chocolate chip cookie...simple and elegant, and tasty (as long as you use real butter and real vanilla
