Marbled Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Marbled Pumpkin Bundt Cake on OvertimeCook

I feel like I spend a lot of time describing recipes as "the best" or "the most popular" or maybe "the most successful" of the sort that I have ever made. My editor mentioned it to me recently. "You know, Miriam, if you keep telling your readers that the recipe is "the best you ever made," they might stop believing you. How many bests can you have?" Well, I don't know what it is with me and all of these superlatives, but this recipe? It deserves it. You'll have to trust me where this cake is concerned. Firstly, pumpkin has a magical effect on baked goods. It turns the treat moist and soft and so plain delicious. Add spices, chocolate and some other goodies, and you're left with a bundt … [Read more...]

Streusel Swirled Butterscotch Bundt Cake

Buterscotch Bundt Cake on Overtime Cook

This recipe will always have a very dear pace in my heart. Why, you ask? Well, it's the first of my recipes to ever go "viral." This recipe was published in my dessert column in Ami Magazine a year ago, and it was crazy popular. Here's the cool thing. One of the ingredients in this cake, butterscotch chips, are only available in non-dairy and kosher through one company (that I know of). And while most kosher grocery stores in the New York area carry these chips, it isn't something that they stock large quantities of. Which was never much of an issue, until my cake recipe was published. Suddenly, these chips were nowhere to be found. Nobody had them. Any store that could get them in sold … [Read more...]

Cherry Lime Bundt Cake

cherry lime cake

One of the tough things about writing a recipe column for a magazine is doing things way in advance. I originally made this cake recipe in March...way before cherries graced the shelves of the supermarkets in my area. So I came up with a solution, and bought a package of cherries from the freezer aisle. Well, that's a good solution for making this fabulous cake year round, but now that it's summer and delicious fresh cherries are abundantly available, there's only one way to make these properly, and it involves fresh cherries, and a handy cherry pitter sent to me by my friends over at OXO! This is one of my favorite new bundt cake recipes - fresh, bright, light, and simply delicious. Try … [Read more...]

maple sour cream bundt cake on overtime cook

This post is going to be very short, but it's totally worth it because I have a fabulous new bundt cake recipe to share with you today! My awesome friend BL came to my house for Shabbat recently, and in her honor, I knew I had to come up with a delicious cake to serve. One of her favorite dessert flavors is maple, so my mind naturally went there. Add in some sour cream (or tofutti sour cream, if you are so inclined) for richness, and you are left with one of the most delicious bundt cakes I've come up with in a while! If you are looking for a delicious, simple, and very pretty cake, try this. It's dense and pound cake-like, but with a wonderfully different flavor. You'll totally love … [Read more...]

Mini Red Velvet Bundt Cakes with Cream Cheese Glaze

Mini Red Velvet Bundt Cakes

Hey friends! Long time no speak, huh? I would totally apologize for my long absence, but I had such a good reason that I am not going to even bother. Plus I might just do it again. I am not going to go into details, but I will say that if you're a reader of Ami Magazine, you are in for a huge treat. (Speaking of Ami, did y'all catch my gorgeous cookies on the cover last week?!) Anywho. Let's talk about the main reason you're here: cake! Specifically, these gorgeous little bundt cakes. I first made these cakes for the charity party I worked on recently. They were a hit, but sadly I didn't get to photograph them. Then I made these cakes on Hannukah when my whole family was around. Again, it … [Read more...]

Mini Chocolate Pomegranate Bundt Cakes with Pomegranate Glaze

Mini Chocolate Pomegranate Bundt Cakes on Overtime Cook

Before we talk about the recipe I'm posting tonight, can we discuss the most amazing thing that happened? Two weeks ago, I published a recipe in the Ami magazine for a butterscotch bundt cake. I've been writing the column for more than half a year now, and have gotten some nice feedback before, but I was completely unprepared for this. Emails poured in from all over the world. People had made my cake and loved it, people who wanted to make my cake and had questions, and people who just plain love my column. My ego is still a little swollen, so bear with me because I'm still bragging. Turns out, the cake was popular enough to cause butterscotch chip shortages in Kosher grocery stores all … [Read more...]

Zebra Bundt Cake

Zebra Bundt Cake 1

Ever since I made that zebra cake months ago, I have been completely fascinated by the possibilities that this method allows. Zebra cheesecake, zebra cupcakes, zebra layer cake...I totally want to try all of those. Enter pinterest and the ideas seriously don't end! Then I saw this Zebra Bunt Cake on Bakers Royale, and I was totally infatuated. Combine zebra style with my favorite kind of cake (bundt cake, duh) and you have a gorgeous and winning dessert. Best thing about this cake? It looks gorgeous, but it totally tastes amazing too! The zebra style does take an extra couple of minutes, but I think it's well worth it. If you're confused about how to get the pattern, scroll down for my … [Read more...]

Party Pictures and Goodies Round Up

Party Pics- Table 1-2

There are no recipe in this post, so if that's all you're here for, sorry to disappoint. However, I am going to show you what I made for my sister's engagement party and how I displayed it. Partially as an explanation of why I disappeared for a couple of weeks, and partially in case you want ideas of something to make for a party. Edit: by request, I have added freezability (I don't think that's a real word) information to each item. Please comment or email me for more details. (Excuse the poor quality of the pictures. By the time I had finished setting up I had a very short window of time to take them before people arrived and started to demolish the treats.) Firstly, the set-up. My … [Read more...]
