Mini Bundt Cakes with a Pumpkin Glaze
It’s the holiday season and for me that means lots of hosting and attending parties. I for one love to bake but honestly sometimes I’m just in a huge rush and I need something quick and easy that will be a conversation starter. These mini bundt cakes with pumpkin glaze are just that. Bundt cakes have been a crowd favorite for years and I’m so glad I have a simple way to make that at home now.
I picked up this mini bundt cake maker from Target (teal color linked here) last holiday season and it has been in heavy rotation ever since then. I love that it is so tiny. It makes it the perfect kitchen essential for making a tasty dessert in under 20 minutes. I can easily whip up single serve desserts from scratch or with my favorite box cake mix. If you’re looking for a visually appealing dessert to serve at your upcoming parties or even to give as a party favor, I highly recommend mini bundt cakes. They’re the perfect sweet addition to any festive gathering.
If you want to make these bundt cakes in bulk, I highly recommend a baking pan like this one.

What I love the most about these bundt cakes is the simplicity of it all. As a busy work at home mom, there is constantly so many things on my to do list. Each cake takes under 15 minutes to make and I can use a box cake mix rather than making a cake from scratch. Now don’t get me wrong. I love a good cake made at home from scratch but sometimes I’m in a bind and need something quick. A box cake mix does just as good a job.
Baking Tips for Perfect Mini Bundt Cakes
Spraying the mini maker with a cooking spray before pouring the batter will help prevent any sticking and preserve the details of the bundt cake.
When you’re making your bundt cakes, I find it’s best to pour the batter into a large measuring cup. This makes it easier to pour the batter in the maker without making a mess. You want to fill the maker up to the top of the mold but be sure to not overfill. The maker will tell you the cake is ready when the blue light is lit. Mini bundt cakes cook a lot faster than traditional cakes so you want to stay nearby when baking.
The great thing about these personal size mini bundt cakes is that they can be easily customized to your taste. You can get creative with the cake flavor, frosting, glaze and toppings. Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I whipped up a flavorful pumpkin glaze using only a handful of ingredients.
Pumpkin Glaze Ingredients
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk (Use less if you prefer for your glaze to be thicker)
- Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
