Mini Chocolate Glazed Strawberry Bundt Cakes

Wowwww. So just typed up this blog post but it didn’t save. Oh well, anyways… I just bought these mini bundt cake pans and I’ve been so obsessed with them! We were having dinner at a family friend’s home so my mom asked me to make some dessert. Perfect opportunity! Guess I’ll just make some bundt cakes. For the recipe below I used my favorite chocolate cake- Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Cake found here. I didn’t know what to put in the hole of the bundt cake so I tried mini chocolate chips, but they were too dark. To brighten it up a bit I then tried this raspberry jam, but the colors still didn’t look right. In the end, I decided that what I needed was- FRUIT! The bright colors complement the darkness of the chocolate perfectly. I originally wanted to use raspberries, but the grocery store was out of them :( Guessed I’d just have to do with strawberries. I got some and then saw some strawberry glaze on my way out so I just bought that as well.

Homemade Glaze

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 white chocolate baking squares
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions:

Mix together all the ingredients and pour onto each bundt cake in a circular fashion. If the glaze is too runny, add more confectioner’s sugar to it. You can adjust the ingredients based on what you have available (it is usually made only with the sugar and milk but I added the other ingredients myself).
