Choc chip mini bundt cakes

Choc chip mini bundt cakes from scratch

My mini bundt tin is one of my favourite pieces of kitchen baking paraphernalia. I love the way the pretty little fluted tins instantly make the cakes look fancy. I own several large bundt tins too but the mini ones have a special place in my heart.

A recent trip to Costco saw me purchase a two kilogram bag of dark chocolate chips – that’s a shed-load of chocolate, for readers not familiar with the metric system.

Consequently I have been looking for ways to use up this bag, and when I saw my beloved mini bundt tin winking at me from the drawer I knew what I would do.

These choc chip mini bundt cakes need no frosting or icing but if you would like to drown them with a rich dark chocolate sauce prior to serving I won’t tell anyone.

They are best made close to serving, or you can freeze them. You could use milk chocolate chips if you like.

GATHER:

½ cup caster sugar

120 grams butter, softened, diced

2 eggs, at room temperature

3/4 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups self-raising flour

½ cup dark chocolate chips

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C° and spray a mini bundt tin with non-stick cooking spray, ensuring you get into all the crevices.

In the bowl of an electric mixer with paddle attachment beat sugar, vanilla, butter, and eggs on medium until thoroughly combined – this should take between three and five minutes depending on your machine.

Turn off beaters, scrape down sides of bowl with spatula, then with mixer on low beat in milk and flour in alternate batches. Increase speed to medium and beat until just combined and smooth – do not over-beat.

Use a silver spoon to stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into the mini bundt tin and bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out dry. Set aside for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely – you may need to run a butter knife gently around the edges to loosen.

    Adorable, yes, I will have only one, or two, or three as they are so teeny. (Finds one has eaten amount equivalent to large bundt cake…) They look golden brown and delicious Mrs H.

    Your bundt pans wink at you? Given my somewhat checkered history, my baking pans tend to scream when they see me getting anywhere near them. These cakes do look good and they’re small enough that I would enjoy 2 without any guilt. it’s the 3rd or 4th ones that may give me a problem, though. 😉

    I love all things mini. I think their cuteness makes everything taste better. And your mini bundt cakes look yummy!
