Gingerbread Beer Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze by janeofmanytrade

WHO: janeofmanytrade is a devoted gardener, beekeeper, and cook. 
WHAT: A deeply spiced chocolate cake with a secret ingredient. 
HOW: Make a glaze while a marbled batter bakes in the oven, and try to wait until it cools to eat.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The unusual ingredients in this cake (mustard, sorghum, beer -- we're looking at you), combine to make one of the most complex, nuanced chocolate cakes we know.

Hi! I love your blog! I just thought I'd mention that your photos are always oversized in Google Reader, which makes them impossible to see in just one screen (and my first reaction is to just skip the post when that happens). Any way you could resize them or install a plugin that does so automatically?
