LITTLE did Carole know what her recipe would grow into when she shared it with the crafty CT kitchen folks! Citing its status in her family as a favorite bundt cake, she generously offered it for other readers to enjoy. Our cooks immediately agreed...but not before doubling everyone's pleasure. How so?
