Orange Mint Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

It's been awhile since I participated in Bundt Bakers but I missed it a lot when I was gone!  I love to bake and cake, any kind of cake, is my favorite.  I enjoy using a bundt pan because the cakes always look so pretty when they come from the pan.


The theme this month is A Thousand and One Nights.  Listen to how  Lara from Tartacadabra got us to get involved:

Let Scheherazade's tales ensnare you as they ensnared Shahryar. Let them inspire you to bake something with the most suggestive ingredients from Arabic, Persian and Indian kitchens.

Use pistachios, almonds, dates, raisins, cashews, spearmint, saffron, cardamom, rosewater, orange blossom water, figs, dried apricots, coconuts, sesame (obviously!)... anything you would expect to be served at Aladdin and Badroulbadour's table, while belly dancers entertain them and their guests.


I hope that you will enjoy this combination of orange and mint, and that you will be swept away by the romance of Arabic, Persian and Indian kitchens!

I'm also linking up with Laura at Thoughts of Home on Thursdays!
