Mini Chocolate Cakes

Use your favorite chocolate sponge cake recipe and prepare the mini chocolate cakes. If you need a new recipe to make your mini cakes, try out this eggless chocolate cake version. Or, if you prefer a low carb coconut flour mini cake. 

You can also try this delicious chocolate sour cream bundt mini cake recipe. Bake the number of mini cakes your need. Remember you will need one mini cake per dessert portion.

Although a mini bundt cake pan makes your cakes look more elegant, you can prepare them in a standard muffin pan. Bake the cakes as per the recipe instructions. And, leave them to cool on a tight grid wire rack. This is important to prevent the small cakes from breaking when placed on a large grid rack.

I will share the secret to why I use a bundt cake pan below.

You will discover a tip to have your dinner guests asking for more dessert!

A Generous Drizzle of Chocolate

Melt 100g of good quality milk or dark chocolate for every 6 mini cakes. I prefer to melt the chocolate in the microwave at a low temperature. Take care not to burn and use a heat safe glass bowl. 

Instead of melting chocolate, you can use Nutella chocolate spread. Be sure to mix it thoroughly before adding it onto the cakes. Just remember it contains nuts, in case there are guests with allergies.

It is now time to plate your mini chocolate cakes…

Recipe Top Tip

Using a white plate improves your presentation as it makes the berry and chocolate colors appear more vibrant. You can plate them as a single serving – one cake per plate. Or, all the cakes on one big plate.

Use a fork and drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled mini cakes. The amount of chocolate you want to use is your choice. My motto is, of course, the more the better!

Make sure to drizzle the chocolate across the cakes to also create some splashes of chocolate on the plate.

My bundt cake pan Secret

bundt cake pan for mini chocolate cakes #cakedessert #chocolatecakeThis is a step that you can skip and still create a delicious dessert. But, if you want to take the taste one step further and really impress your guests – give it a try!

The reason why I prefer using a bundt cake pan is to create a central space to add a secret ingredient! Mascarpone cream!

The combination of chocolate, berries, and mascarpone cream creates the ultimate dessert experience!

After plating your cakes, just place one spoon of mascarpone inside the ring of the mini chocolate cake. Then drizzle with the chocolate as described above and follow the instructions below. You will be amazed how this one addition boosts the taste sensation!

Red Berry Extravaganza

Choose your favorite red berries, mine are strawberries and raspberries. Make sure to wash and dry them as needed. Place some on top of your chocolate drizzled mini chocolate cake.

If some fell on the plate, no problem! It adds to a beautifully presented dessert serving.

Nuts Decoration

Chop a handful of nuts roughly. Here I prefer to use pistachio or pecan nuts. Sprinkle it freely over your mini cakes. Again be sure to let some fall on the plate around your cake!

A Powdered Sugar Dusting

Last, but not least, give your creation that professional restaurant look. Dust the mini chocolate cake as well as the plate around it, with powdered sugar.

Recipe Top Tip

I love to use a little sugar dusting wand when creating these small dessert cakes. It creates the perfect light dusting you want when serving small desserts.
