Is there a holiday flavor any more festive than gingerbread? We combine this seasonal favorite with chocolate to make single-serving mini bundt cakes. The process is easy as pie, er... cake, especially with the help of an Eclectrics® stand mixer.
You'll use the stand mixer to beat butter until creamy, gradually adding milk, brown sugar, eggs and molasses. Once everything is well blended, slowly add the flour mixture, which includes cocoa, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg (all the flavors of a holiday treat).
You can find mini bundt pans at your favorite kitchenware store or online, but you could also use this recipe to make a traditional, full-size bundt cake.
These cakes bake for about 20 minutes. Cool them completely on a wire rack with parchment paper underneath. The parchment will catch any drips from the chocolate glaze, keeping your countertop clean.
We topped the glazed mini bundts with a sprinkle of crystallized ginger, adding another layer of holiday flavor. These cakes will make a nice addition to your holiday dessert table, especially when served with an after-dinner coffee.
