Mocha Mini Bundt Cakes with Chocolate Ganache glaze



I am a big coffee fan but not a chocolate lover. I cannot eat chocolate as such. But when it makes it's place in cakes and other dessert, where it's not very strong, I love it. This combination of coffee and chocolate is a hit. The cakes turned out very moist and soft and the ganache glaze was just right. These are very easy to make with no fancy equipment required and even a novice baker can bake these with confidence. So go ahead. Here is the recipe.



All you need is 

For the mini bundt cakes

All purpose flour-1 and 1\2 cups
Unsweetened cocoa powder-1\3 cup
Baking soda-1 tsp
Salt-1\4 tsp
Eggs-2
Sugar-1 cup
Olive oil-1\2 cup
Brewed coffee-\12 cup ( you can also use 1 tsp coffee granules dissolved in 1\2 cup water )
White vinegar-2 tsp
Vanilla extract-2 tsp

For chocolate ganache

Milk chocolate-100 gm ( cut into small pieces )
Butter- 2 tbsp
Sugar- 1tbsp
Fresh cream- 1\2 cup



Method of preparation

For mini bundt cakes

Pre heat the oven to 180 degree C.
Grease a mini bundt cake pan or line a cupcake pan.
In a bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, olive oil, brewed coffee, vinegar and vanilla extract.
Mix dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients and whisk till combined.
Fill the batter in the pan, three fourth full.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the pan after 5 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

Heat fresh cream, sugar and butter in a pan.
As soon it starts to boil, remove from heat and pour over chocolate.
