Use this recipe to make little bundt cakes and glaze them. The recipe is easy. This is like making cake donuts without the frying. There are variations included for chocolate and orange glazed little cakes.
We used a mini bundt cake pan for this recipe though a muffin pan should work. Baking times may vary with a different pan.
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray the mini bundt cake molds with non stick spray.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl.
- In another bowl, mix the melted butter, milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla together.
- Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture. Gently stir, mixing just until moistened. Divide the batter into the twelve molds, using all of the batter. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until the cakes test done.
- After five minutes, remove the cakes from the pan. Let them cool completely before glazing using the recipe below.
For the glaze
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons hot water
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Blend the ingredients together until smooth. Dip the cooled cakes in glaze, turning them until covered. Set on a cooling rack until the glaze dries.
For a chocolate glaze: Add 1 tablespoon cocoa and 1 teaspoon more hot water.
For a lemon or orange glaze: Add 1 teaspoon zest and substitute lemon or orange juice for the milk.
