Recipe: Blood Orange Mini Bundt Cakes
Courtesy of Pie Girl Bakes
Now that it’s 2018, we’re all probably out of our holiday cookie supply and may be a bit lost in terms of what to bake next.
Do not fret – blood orange season is here!
Every year I go pretty hard on blood orange baked goods, as the flavour is wonderful and their bright pink colour is the perfect way to brighten up grey January days. This time around, I decided to christen my new Nordicware Heritage Mini Bundt pan (thanks Grammy!) and make these mini blood orange bundt cakes!
Instead of my usual sour cream, I used creme fraiche in these cakes and I absolutely love the result. It enhances the acidity, balances the sweetness of the oranges and makes the glaze extra smooth. I also love having it in the fridge for fancy tartines;)
If you don’t have a mini bundt pan, these would also be great donuts as well! Just bake at 425F for 8 minutes instead.
