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.
Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe
- 1 Box Devils Food Cake Betty Crocker
- 1 1/3 Cup Oil
- 1 Box Chocolate Pudding Small Box
- 1/2 Cup Warm Water
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
- Mix ingredients together, adding the chocolate chips last. Pour into greased mini bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. The recipe will make 12 mini bundt cakes. Cool completely before frosting. Place frosting in a pastry bag using a medium smooth tip (mine was a Wilton tip #12) and pipe back and forth in loops like shown:
This is the perfect icing to put on top of the cake.
Easy Butter Frosting
- 1/3 Cup Softened Butter
- 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
- 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
- 2-3 Tbsp Milk Stiffer is better for Bundt
- 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.
