I'm back into the swing of things at school with the kids into their second week of school. The first couple of weeks are always hectic. I'm not a classroom teacher so I don't have a set schedule until a few weeks into the school year. That means last week I spent time giving my students placement tests and this week I've been working on putting them into groups. I've also had to do double duty this week because my instructional assistant in having some fun in the sun in Disney World so I'm working with all of our kids.
So in an effort to keep myself awake and energized throughout the day I made a sweet treat to bring in for the staff. Plus I wanted to bake my Bundt cake for this month's #BundtAMonth which has a theme of baking a fancy Bundt cake for the #BundtAMonth club's anniversary! I wasn't quite sure what a fancy Bundt cake was until I saw a picture of the espresso cake with caramel and espresso glaze. This cake is definitely a show stopper.
The cake has a subtle espresso taste which tastes amazing with the chocolate chips and cinnamon chips baked into it. Then a caramel drizzle and an espresso drizzle finish off this cake in a beautiful design. It was rich and tasted of coffee and caramel. The perfect combination to keep me going during this hectic week. I enjoyed it with my coffee and then may have had another slice as dessert after my lunch. Yum!
