I have shared with you over the past few months that we have been eating low-carb in our household lately. I have also concluded that I am not impressed with the low-carb baked goods that are meant to help us pretend that most things made with almond flour are edible. 🙂 NOT a fan.
So I have just stopped trying to make that situation work and have resorted to just making very small versions of actually edible sweets and eating small portions of those. My latest entry–mini bundt cakes!
This is similar psychology to using small plates when serving meals. A small plate looks more enticing with small portions of food than larger plates with the same amount of food, so your mind may think you are getting to eat a larger amount of food. Whatever works, right? 🙂
I recently found the DASH mini bundt cake maker and it is so cute!
It is so easy to use and comes with a recipe book. You just open it up like a waffle maker, pour in the batter, close the lid and wait the allotted amount of time (about 12-15 minutes).
I like that the bottom of the cake maker has a little handle that allows you to lift your mini bundt cake out without burning your hands.
After the cake has baked you just lift the lid and remove your perfectly baked mini bundt cake.
I followed one of the recipes in the included recipe book for chocolate cake and it made eight little bundt cakes.
My wheels are already turning for when fall returns next year using pumpkin flavors. These cakes already look like little pumpkins so I can imagine how CUTE these would be if made with pumpkin flavors and in that gorgeous orange fall color.
Each mini bundt cake is about 4″ in diameter and fits in the palm of your hand.
I iced a few for a special Valentine’s Day dessert treat. I dipped some strawberries in chocolate and served them with these little frosted chocolate mini bundt cakes. So good.
So if you are like me and just can’t get on the almond flour bandwagon, I would encourage you to try making traditional baked treats in smaller sizes. Eating small can be fun and this little mini bundt cake maker makes it easy!
Do you have any tiny treats like these mini bundt cakes that you love? Please share with us in the comment section!
