February 20 Chocolate mini bundt cakes


The family has been watching the Kid’s Baking Championship and the little one has the volcano cake challenge on repeat.  Of course we needed to make our own.  But first we needed a base recipe for a chocolate mini bundt cake. 

Scouring my many cookbooks produced a whopping zero recipes!  One of the cake recipes could have been adapted, but with no knowledge of bundt cake baking dynamics, it wasn’t worth the risk.  As such, the Internet it is. 

My fast, easy and yet moist baking requirement was met with Two Peas & Their Pod chocolate bundt cake recipe, as it included sour cream. 

Next time, 1/2 the batter will be made.  The recipe yielded enough for 12 mini bundt cakes. Which I presume is a regular bundt cake size. I do dislike american measurements, difficult to scale appropriately. 

Here is an adapted recipe, for a 6 mini bundt cake pan. Note that I use significantly less sugar but increase the cocoa powder ratio.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup water
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 large eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
