22 Best Mini Bundt Cake Recipes
Just below, you will discover delicious mini bundt cakes made with a range of flavors, presentations, and techniques. We were, at times, amazed by the creativity that went into each one.

Banana Split Bundt Cakes
For Allie of Baking A moment, spring isn’t just about transitioning from cold to warm weather. And it’s not just about burgeoning greenery and long scenic walks. Spring is personal for her. Her sons were born in spring. So, for their birthdays, she always makes something unique.
One year in spring, that special something was this banana split bundt cakes recipe.
Mini banana bundt cakes are adorned with juicy pineapple, strawberry frosting, chocolate drizzle, and salty peanuts. Oh, and a cherry on top because no banana split is complete without one.

If you’re looking for a mini bundt cake recipe to catch the eye, look no further than these coconut Ube mini bundt cakes from The Sweet And Sour Baker. They are striking, novel, tasty, and just plain interesting!
But, what is ube, you might ask? Well, it’s a purple tuber from the Philippines, and it tastes like a sweet potato, only sweeter and with a vanilla note. This recipe calls for ube extract and shredded coconut. And to top it off, there’s a delicious coconut glaze.

Hummingbird Mini Cakes
You may have just found your new favorite with these hummingbird mini bundt cakes from Angie of Big Bears Wife. Sure they’re scrumptious, but they’re also a versatile dessert that will get you noticed. So, make them for Easter, Mother’s Day, or even a spring potluck.
But, what the heck is a hummingbird cake? It’s a spice cake loaded with basically everything but the kitchen sink. Each heavenly bite will have pecans, bananas, and pineapples. However, the best part is the diet challenging thick cream cheese frosting. Mmmm!

Mini Meyer Lemon Bundt Cakes
Meyer lemons are smaller, sweeter, and more floral in taste than the most commonly available lemons. Some even say there is a spiced aroma note to them. In short, they are amazing!
So, if you’re anything like Julie of The Little Kitchen, you’ll be dreaming up ways to use Meyer lemons in your cooking when they are in season. So why not these Meyer lemon mini bundt cakes?
Consider this official notice. These baby cakes may be addictive, as Julie confessed to eating half a dozen soon after making them.
And you won’t find any fancy glazes or add-ins: Nope, just lemon and a dusting of powdered sugar. Delicious simplicity.

Mini Cream Cheese Pound Cakes
Cream cheese enthusiast Lizzie of the eponymic Sweet Things By Lizzie shares her love of spreadable cheese through these sweet and tangy mini-pound cakes. It’s a recipe she’s been making for a long while now.
This simple seven-ingredient recipe takes about 20 minutes to prepare and makes about a dozen of the palm-sized confections. Just let them cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Now, you could gussy the cakes up with chocolate chips, a bright, citrusy glaze, or a berry compote. But, they are melt in your mouth, tender, moist, tangy, and delicious as is.

Sweet Potato Bourbon
Are you a sweet potato or a pumpkin person? I find that most people fall into one camp or the other, rarely both, and sometimes neither. Well, these sweet potato bourbon mini bundt cakes from Allison of Tornadough Alli may gain some converts.
These miniaturized cakes start with bourbon-spiked cake batter. They are then topped with a luscious maple buttercream frosting. Now, Alli could’ve stopped there, and these little cakes would’ve been amazing. But no, she finishes them with maple pecan glaze to guarantee there are no leftovers.

Guinness Stout with Baileys Buttercream
Celebrate St. Patricks Day with these Guinness mini bundt cakes, sure. That’s a no-brainer. But there are 364 other days of the year you’ll be thinking about these Bailey’s buttercream crowned cakes from Shanna of Pineapple and Coconut.
Stout beer brings out the best in chocolate treats. The chocolate becomes more, well, chocolatey.
Stout-infused chocolate bundts are baked, cooled, and sliced. Then boozy Bailey’s buttercream frosting is layered between them and added on top before they’re drizzled with rich buttery caramel sauce for a beautiful presentation you get to eat with your eyes first. Yum!

To celebrate the anniversary of her blog, The Bitter Side Of Sweet, Nancy made these festive funfetti mini bundt cakes. Funfetti is always an excellent way to celebrate birthdays, high test scores, or maybe just for making it through traffic without flipping out.

Mini French Toast
In the eyes of Betsy of self-titled food blog Betsy Life, the meal of spring is brunch. And brunch isn’t brunching without champagne. So naturally, she encourages you to enjoy these mini French toast bundt cakes with lots of champagne.
Betsy loves to use gorgeous local Challa bread to make these bundts, but any bread will do, even hot dog buns or the “heel” of the loaf. To assemble, you tear the bread into small pieces, fill the pan with the pieces, then pour the egg mixture over the bread.
Finally, bake. And voila, a breakfast, brunch, or breakfast for dinner fit for a bottle of bubbly. Enjoy!

Mini Almond and Matcha
Fida of Sweet And Savoury Pursuits developed this mini almond and matcha bundt cakes recipe inspired by the surge of matcha recipes over the last five years.
Matcha had a nice food trend run and was the star ingredient in everything from tea, doughnuts, and even sports drinks.
Matcha is green tea leaves pulverized into a fine powder for those not familiar. As for the taste, matcha has a mild vegetal and tart flavor.
Matcha and almond flour are the standout ingredients in these tasty little cakes. After they are baked and cooled, you douse them in a matcha glaze. And if you want a luxurious finish like Fida, you can delicately arrange sliced almonds on them.

Good carrot cakes are so tasty, moist, and perfect for Easter. The ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg give it that signature taste.
But, this recipe is unique because it starts with a cake mix plus two secret ingredients that give that added richness far and away from your typical box cake.

Caramel Apple Mini Cakes
When Molly of What Molly Made isn’t busy “Killin’ It” at work, she’s busy baking. She bakes for others’ enjoyment, holiday parties, and coworkers.
She bakes because she loves it. And she loves these caramel apple mini cakes. So much so that even she yearns for more apt words to capture their appeal.
Like pineapple upside-down cake, these mini cakes see the good stuff—pecan and apple mixture—going into the bundt pan first before you ladle in the batter.
This process creates a delightful caramelly topping that seeps into the cake, making it moist and, well, heavenly.

Mini Angel Food Bundt Cakes

You’ll find a light, airy angel food cake recipe on Ann’s page. But when you scan the ingredient list, you won’t find whole eggs, and you won’t find butter. These bad boys aren’t supposed to be dense and super-indulgent. Instead, they should be as delicate as a cloud.
For the toppings, try cool whip and fresh fruit to keep to the theme of lightness and freshness.

If you ever find yourself short on time or ingredients, you may have to work with what you have.
And that’s what Dev, of blog Dev Amadeo, did when she created these cinnamon bundts with dulce de leche using only what she had on hand.
Like most other bundts, these baby cakes start with the ingredients you’re used to, like flour, butter, milk, etc. But things get really interesting and tasty with the mention of dulce de leche – an absolutely addictive caramel milk concoction.

Mini bundts are the smaller and cuter version of bundt cakes. They are perfectly sized for single-portion enjoyment. Think cupcakes, but fancier. And because they are so small and cute, they also make for delicious gift-giving.
Another benefit of mini bundt cakes is testing out new flavors without committing to an entire cake.
To make mini bundt cakes, you will need a good recipe (like one of the recipes above) and a mini bundt pan.
You can find mini bundt cakes at many kitchen and home goods stores, craft stores, and even fabric retailers online or in-store. We really like this one from Wilton.
How you store your bundt cake will depend on whether it is perishable. For example, if you add fresh strawberries to your bundt, you will want to keep in the fridge for up to five days.
If your bundt is a basic bundt with cake batter and nothing perishable, you can store it at room temperature for up to five days.
