TWD Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes

Well friends I'm afraid to say that we have another 5 star recipe. It is rich, delicious and cute. I don't know what it is about mini pans, they are just fun to use and fun to serve. Dories recipe made 6 mini bundts but my Pampered Chef Mini-Bundt Stoneware pan must make bigger cakes, I only had batter for 4 minis. These minis really were too big for one serving, we cut them in half for a generous serving. Which defeats the purpose of a Mini, maybe that is why PC no longer sells this piece of stoneware. Sorry, more pointless info.

The important info will be on  Kristins blog 'I'm Right About Everything', she is hosting  TWD this week. This recipe used 'premium-quality' milk chocolate, melted. I had a yummy bar of milk chocolate just waiting for the right recipe. The cake had a mild milk chocolate flavor with a delicious cocoa-walnut swirl. I topped my cakes with a generous drizzle of chocolate ganache. Served with vanilla ice cream it was a delicious special occasion dessert.

I will make this recipe again, I would like to try it without the swirl in cupcake pans. Can one really have too many chocolate cake recipes? I think not! I'm anxious to see what other TWD bakers did with this recipe.

They look fantastic! I did leave the swirl out, but mine were a bit boring. They needed the caramel sauce and pecans, I found. It would be hard to share one of yours, though.

Okay, you are the Drizzle Queen, hands down, the official Drizzle Queen...how do you do that??? I am hopeless at drizzling. I think I need to go to a drizzling class and learn how to do it. Your cakes look beautiful. And, the minis were such fun, weren't they? I have to remember to get that pan out more often.

They are sooooo cute. I wasn't able to find the mini Bundt pan so I had to use a jumbo muffin pan :( Yours look so much better.
