Chocolate Bundt Cake with darling printable

Posted by  ·  April 24, 2011  ·  Last Updated: April 19, 2019

Do you love this adorable mini chocolate bundt cake? Today I am sharing this recipe for a chocolate bundt cake. Teacher Appreciation is the perfect chance to say “Thank You!” to our favorite teachers, librarians, and school staff.

    A small cake, cupcake or mini bundt cake is a perfect gift. The cake is the way to my heart after all. For Teacher Appreciation I love mini bundt cakes because the recipe is easy enough for the kids to help… always a bonus. It’s a treat that seems special and fun. Here’s how to make them. First of all, you won’t need a chocolate glaze or chocolate ganache. This recipe is so easy because it starts with a cake mix. Also, a pudding mixes makes it nice and moist.

    • 1/3 Cup Softened Butter
    • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
    • 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
    • 2-3 Tbsp Milk Stiffer is better for Bundt


    1. Mix together till smooth. Add coloring if desired. I usually leave it white for Bundt Cakes.

    I love to give the mini bundts in a small gift box, just to make it feel a little fancy. And speaking of fancy how about flowers on top? Is that too much? Not for me.

    And since no gift would be complete without a tag. I’ve created a sweet little printable just for you.

      Hello, I am making these as I type. They will end up being mini volcanoes with red and orange frosting. My question, 1 and 1/3 cup oil, is that right? Seems like a lot!

      I'm a teacher and I have four sons. Every year at parent-teacher conferences (long, long days for teachers!), I bring a treat to my sons' teachers. I love your idea of the mini-bundt cake, so I paid $1 per box and about $.30 per cake and gave them to the teachers. I even tied a plastic fork onto the ribbon, so they could dig right in. Thanks for the idea!

      Hi Patricia, I laughed when I wrote this post... and almost threw in a little Greek Wedding quote. "What is it? Its a bundt. A bunndtttt, a bonk, a bunnnnnnnndt. Its a cake. A CAKE!!" I don't even have big hair and I still like the fancy little flower on the cake ;-). cheers, Calli

      Very Pretty!. I will say, though, the flowers instantly made me think of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. :)
