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. Continue reading

Chocolate rum bundt cake

I had such an urge to bake a chocolate bundt cake this morning. I was planning to bake shortbread but some invisible force was telling me to create a cake with chocolate and rum that I thought – who am I to argue with the Jedi-minefield that is permeating my kitchen? Continue reading

Chai bundt cake [The Hungry Mum]

On a recent child-free weekend in Sydney the Hungry Dad and I explored the stunningly elegant Stand Arcade. We found the amazing Gewürzhaus, a teeny shop crammed with herbs, spices, salts and teas from all around the world.

After sampling some lovely mulled wine as we perused the boutique we ended up leaving with a heavy bag and lighter wallet. One of our purchases was a chai tea mix and let me tell you: this brew was the real deal. Full of orange peel, cardamom and other chunky bits of deliciousness it soon became a fav in the Hungry House. Continue reading

Donna Hay marble cake

13 Apr


This Donna Hay cake is simple and impressive and can be jazzed up with the addition of a quick icing. It isn’t overly chocolaty which could be a good or a bad thing, depending on how you feel about chocolate or how early in the day it is – while choc addicts would argue that it is never too early in the day for a chocolate hit I would actually disagree (ducks for cover). This cake neatly straddles the issue though – there is just enough chocolate for any time of day. Continue reading

Chocolate orange bundt cake

23 Apr


This is one of my favourite cakes to bake and eat so I was gobsmacked that I hadn’t blogged it already. I searched my blog twice, convinced that I must have already shared such a fab cake with everyone but I hadn’t. MAJOR oversight.

I used a recipe is called ‘Anna Encel’s Wonderful Babka’ in a fav cookbook of mine called ’50 Fabulous Chocolate Cakes’ that gets a major workout in my kitchen.

Like I tend to do I reduced the amount of sugar by half a cup. The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons of drinking chocolate which I changed to melted chocolate. I normally use 100grams of dark chocolate but this time I broke up one of the many milk chocolate Easter bunnies that my girls got for Easter and used that instead. Shhh, don’t say a word….



250g butter, melted

3 large eggs

2 ½ cups self-raising flour

1 cup caster sugar

100g melted dark chocolate

1 ½ cups orange juice

½ tsp orange liqueur [optional]


Let’s get to it:

Preheat oven to 180C and thoroughly grease a bundt tin, ensuring you get into all the crevices.

Put all the ingredients except the melted chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until well combined.

Pour one half of the mix into the bundt tin then dollop in the melted chocolate. Cover with the remaining batter

Bake 40-ish minutes [depending on your oven you may need another 5 or so minutes]

Allow to cool in tin for about 30 minutes before tipping onto wire rack.
