Apple Lemon Drizzle Bundt Cake

Sweet and Sour

If I was to describe my love life in food terms I would describe it as sweet and sour.  I  have pushed those who care about my away and I have been betrayed and hurt.  At the same time I have felt love, passion and an abundance of happiness.  My newest bake creation is a symbol of the roles I play in my love life, no matter how sour the surface can appear there will always be a sweet scent and glaze shining through and the body (heart and soul) will remain sweet and rich.  I always have good intentions.  I would never intentionally hurt anyone.  Everything I love to love and I hate to hate.  This cake is really lovely.  I think it combines bitterness and sweetness well.  Apples, lemons, vanilla and honey.
