TWD: Rewind! Milk Chocolate Miniature Bundt Cakes

Don't get too excited - there's no photo. (Not that my photos are terribly excitement-worthy.) This week I was in a bundt mood - thanks to Mary the Food Librarian - and I had volunteered to bring something to my church's holiday craft/bake sale. So, Milk Chocolate Miniature Bundt Cakes to the rescue.

This week for Tuesdays with Dorie we get to rewind an old pick. I didn't make these when they were picked waaaaaay back in February 2010 (by Kristin of I’m Right About Everything). I bought a block of Callebaut milk chocolate and got ready to roll.

I like milk chocolate. I know it's not cool to admit it, but I do. I am picky with my milk chocolate and really only like Cadbury and Callebaut. I do think that your average chocolate dessert needs more oomph than milk chocolate can provide, however, so I threw in half a package of miniature semisweet morsels. The little cakes (yes, I actually own the miniature bundt pan that Dorie calls for in the recipe) were done in a flash. I did taste one in the interest of quality control before sending them off to the bake sale. It was a good call on adding the chips - I didn't glaze the cakes, and they needed that little extra something.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I'll be back next week with the Normandy Apple Tart, chosen by the fabulous Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures. I've already made it and I must insist that you do the same. It's incredible. I've also made the Sour Cream Pumpkin Tart (selected by Judy of Judy’s Gross Eats) several times before and love it - although I may or may not be able to post about it. We'll see...


  1. Yum on mini bundts! I agree that baked stuff is generally better with darker chocolate.

  2. This was one of the recipes I was maybe least intrigued by, when I read the title (milk chocolate? uhm..) and most surprised when I found out they are just amazing little cakes with an incredible swirl in the middle! Glad you made and liked them.

  3. I never made those milk chocolate bundts- sounds fun!
