Tuesdays with Dorie - Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes
This week's TWD was Milk Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes and it was Kristin, of I'm Right About Everything, who picked this winner. Be sure to stop by her blog for the recipe (if you don't already own a copy of Dorie's book). As soon as I saw her choice I was excited! I love chocolate cake, love nuts, of all kinds, and had a new cake pan I couldn't wait to use. It makes 6 cute heart shaped cakes and when I saw this recipe I knew I would use this pan for it.
It wasn't until my glaze seized up in the pan, after adding the corn syrup, that I remembered all the comments I had read (and said "Oh, I will have to remember that"...Hah!) about problems with the glaze. I solved my issue by heating up some heavy whipping cream and stirring that into the glaze until I could pour it over my cooled mini heart cakes. I sprinkled a few toasted walnuts over the top of each cake before the glaze hardened.
Drop by TWD and see what everyone else thought of this one. Next week...more chocolate! :)
