    Just finished tasting them, amazing. I find it a challenge to bake desserts without eggs, and these were fantastic.
    They held shape, great texture, yummy taste. The teen boys who are picky loved them.
    We have gluten, dairy, egg intolerance, so these will be a keeper.
    Thanks again

    How far do you fill the mini bundt? I. Wonder if my pan is different,Wilson, 4x 1 3/4, hmmm. I guess at least 3/4 full, I maybe able to make 6. Thanks, just trying to learn.
    We made your poptarts this week, my teen boys ate them in a minute, so thanks.

  3. Divine! Just divine!

  4. I’m so thankful for this blog. Truly. The last year would have much, much harder without having this wonderful space as a resource. Thank you!!!

  5. I baked these today because my boss has dietary restrictions and I don’t want her to miss out on goodies when I’m in the baking mood! Naturally I had to taste test them and oh my goodness were they fantastic! I subbed corn starch for Xanthan Gum and coconut oil was outrageously priced so I left then without icing. If all your recipes are this good, I foresee a new dietary lifestyle for myself!

  6. mini namastasties! i love the while frosting too

  7. my GF made these for me….i chomped them up sonz!

    • I was SHOCKED that you chomped up the amount you did. Proof that these are boyfriend-approved, folks!

  8. Look’s delicious especially chocolate!

  9. These cakes look amazing!!! Definitely going to try this recipe. Thanks for posting.

    The cakes look wonderful. Since I work with your mother do you think you could send some to her for us all here at the hospital?

    • haha! I’m beginning to think this is an office-wide conspiracy :)

      • Your Biggest Fan! says:

        Whaaaaat? What in the world would make you think that???:-)
        I might have just suggested………….
        These look great! You need to sell your flour blend. No way we can get that type of thing around here- not to mention xanthan gum!
        Hmmmm, I’m thinking you need to put on your promo tour. I bet we could put together a group interested in a cooking lesson, hmmmm:-)

  11. Lindsey says:

    Looks very yummy!

  12. If I send you my address will you send me a mini bundt?

  13. I be not sad! Them cakes look fab!

  14. Wow these are so beautiful and professional looking! I love how dainty and cute “mini” recipes are. Small food is just so much more fun to eat!

  15. Those are some gorgeous little bundts! They look like they came straight out of a magazine. You’re such a gluten-free guru… I can’t believe how amazing everything you make is. I’ll have to try your GF flour blend the next time I’m mixing a batch together (mine is similar, though I’ve never tried it with sorghum flour).

    • Aw, thank you so much Willow! I’m still trying to figure out gf baking–it’s a never-ending battle but your words are so stinkin’ appreciated, especially coming from YOU!

  16. I have had several failures in the kitchen as of late and it revolves around cakes…and booze…and then some more booze…I cannot seem to get my GF blend right without it being very dense. These look nice and fluffy. Will have to try your blend. Could eat one of these right now…

  17. These are beautiful Cara! I always love your photos with the blue little cake stand.

  18. These bundt cakes are absolute beauties. Hmm… I wonder if they’d work without xanthan gum (use Konjac powder + chia) and vinegar (use lemon) in my donut pans? I think I’ll have to finish off my cream cheese brownies before finding out. Alas and alack. Furthermore. Boo Hoo. hehe

  19. I haven’t used my mini bundt pans since I started baking gluten-free. Maybe I should.

  20. For those of us who don’t have mini-bundt pans handily lying around our kitchen ;), do you think this will work with one normal size bundt pan? Obviously you’d need to bake longer, but volume-wise it would be about right, right?

  21. look at these beauties! i love the ones with the white frosting. the contrast with the chocolate cake is gorgeous. and did i say, they look perfectly delicious. i want to sink my teeth into one RIGHT NOW.

    • I really loved the white frosting as well. They were the perfect little treat (even the bf ate a handful of them!) ha


  1. […] Kate is also vegan, which makes baking a little, but not a lot, trickier. I also had to make something gluten-free if I wanted to make sure everything tasted okay, as any good baker will do. (How do you discover you forgot the sugar unless you taste the batter?) So I went to a website she shared with me, and found this recipe for gluten-free and vegan Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes. […]
