Mother’s Day is around the corner, and many are planning special ways to treat their mothers. I wanted to share a special cake recipe to mark this very special day honoring mothers. This hibiscus glazed bundt cake is easy to make and is super delicious!
I used dried organic hibiscus, to infuse the cake with a light floral note, and add a bright pop of pink! I also spiced my cake with a hint of cardamom.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have noticed that I love my Nordic Ware Bake pans. They’re super sturdy, come in beautiful designs. The pan I used for this cake can be purchased here
Along with a sweet treat, flowers are a great way to tell mom ‘I love you’. My favorite spring blooms are lilacs. My neighbor, shared these blooms with me 😀
