Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I have the wonderful opportunity to cook on “Living Dayton” this afternoon and sharing one of my newest healthified recipes: Thanksgiving Stuffed Bundt Cake.
This is super easy to make, and most of the prep work can be done the night before. You can chop up your onions, celery, and herbs, and toast your bread, all within 24 hours of making the stuffing cake. Just store everything in ziplock bags or storage containers (veggies and herbs in the fridge), and you’re all ready to go! It’s also easy enough recipe to hand off to someone who wants to help in the kitchen.
