Mulled Wine Bundt Cake is an absolute staple dessert around Christmas in Germany. We love our mulled wine and put it in everything around Christmas – from gravy to cake batter. Usually, I would make a big Mulled Wine & Chocolate Bundt Cake but this Christmas I opted for the miniature Version.
These Mini Bundt Cakes look absolutely gorgeous on a cookie plate plus with them being bite-sized and with all the other goodies around the house, they are more tempting to eat than a big slice of cake. Who wants to ruin their appetite with a huge slice of cake when there`s so much else to eat, right?
These Mulled Wine Mini Bundt Cakes are flavoured with red wine, chocolate and our favourite Christmas spices. They are clearly cakes but softer and moister than your normal Bundt Cake – I´d put them somewhere in between cake and confectionary. They just scream Christmas.
The secret to making perfect Mini Bundts is to leave out all ingredients that don`t enhance the flavour and add only the good stuff. Like cocoa, spices, mulled wine and little chunks of nougat or – if you can´t get Nougat, nougat chocolate. The dough is way richer than a normal Bundt Dough and bakes only for about 10 to 12 Minutes. Just take them out when they just begin to set and let them cool in the mould before taking them out.
