TWD: Milk Chocolate Bundt Cake





This week Kristin of the blog "I’m Right About Everything" picked Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes, pages 188 and 189. Check out her blog for the recipe.

I don't have mini Bundt cake pans and despite how cute mini pans are, I don't have any more cupboard space for cake pans. If I did - WHOA that would be a whole new story - I would own every pan under the sun including the Wilton giant cupcake pan, the Williams-Sonoma sandcastle, mini-Bundts, etc. You know how in Sex and the City, the women want really big closets, well, I would love a really big kitchen instead! With a double-oven and a separate wok-kitchen.



For this week's recipe, I doubled the recipe and added chunks of chopped up caramel covered chocolates to the walnut chocolate streusel in the middle of the cake. I also used a simple ganache to ice the cake. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the cross-section of the cake since my mom brought the whole thing to work for a department meeting. I didn't get a chance to taste it so I'll just have to trust that it was delicious and read about it on other TWD Blogs. I did notice that the texture was nicely tight-crumbed and I had no Bundt pan sticking issues. I wonder if anyone did a white chocolate version. Hm... something more to add to my "to bake" list.

You did make it--I came over and had a look when I was up ridiculously early this morning! I think you're going to get fabulous feedback from your mom's work, because it looks great, and the caramel inside-mmmm!

I halved the recipe and used muffin tins.

I also tweaked the recipe a bit.
