Alabama Bramble 🐎

Happy Saturday!!

Kentucky Derby is a week from today and I wanted to share a recipe focused on the Derby. A few months ago I had the pleasure of going to a whiskey tasting sponsored by Coopers Craft and it was so much fun!! We even had the opportunity to mix up some drinks and learn some great history about whiskey.

Saturday May 05, 2018 will be a fun day between the Kentucky Derby and Cinco De Mayo it will be plenty of different activities and celebrations for the day. If you have a celebration at home I hope you add the Alabama Bramble to your beverage menu!!! Cheers!!! 🥃

Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Happy Foodie Friday!!

I am so happy the weekend is here!  We will have beautiful weather this weekend in Birmingham, AL so, that makes it even better!

Omg,  when I tell you this chocolate cake is to die for.  It is delicious and so moist.  I made it for the first time for Thanksgiving for a tester and just fell in love.  One of my aunt’s makes a delicious chocolate cake and several people in family agree that this cake is just as good as the one she makes from scratch.

I have paired the cake with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and it just makes it even better! I hope you love it as much as my family and I.  Happy Baking!!


1 Yellow Box Cake Mix

1 box of Hershey Chocolate Pudding

1 cup of chocolate chips

1 cup sour cream

Mix all of your ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Spray your bundt cake pan with Baker’s Joy cooking spray and pour all of your ingredients in the bundt cake pan. Bake cake for 40-45 minutes on 350.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
