November 15th is National Bundt Day. And in honor of her love for bundt cake, Mary the Food Librarian has been making a bundt cake everyday for the past 30 days! She invited food bloggers to join in the festivities and post a bundt cake today as well. Last year, I joined the festivities and made a bear claw bundt cake!

This year, I made a cinnamon pear pistachio bundt cake, which is a twist on Cooking Light magazine’s apple-cinnamon bundt cake.

This recipe was a snap to assemble. My only slight worry was pouring the final layer of batter over the pear-pistachio mixture as the cake batter isn’t very spreadable. But, a few delicate turns with a spatula did the trick.

The cake turned out great, and I received a lot of happy reviews from my office staff and the Afternoon Drive Crew!

On a side note, I was recently a featured food blog on PR Newswire! I was thrilled at this honor and couldn’t have been happier with Tom Hynes’ review. (Read here.) Make sure to check out PR Newswire for Bloggers as it has several resources to help market your blog!

Also, head over to Mary the Food Librarian’s blog to see this year’s round-up! Happy National Bundt Day!

    This cake is so pretty. It looks like something I could display. Did you ever watch my big fat greek wedding? someone gave a bundt cake to this greek guy and he was like why did they give me a cake with a hole in it, and so he put a plant in the middle for decoration. It was hilarious! Made me think of that scene when I saw this cake!

    I had a lovely day with National Bundt Day. Not only did I get a lot of interest in my bundt but some ladies at the office had heard about it and brought in a Red Velvet bundt to enjoy. I would have traded them BOTH for a sot at this pear pistachio! WOW! Congrats on the review! That is fantastic!
