So I am all about easy recipes, and desserts! We love Samoas and since we can’t get them year round we decided to make these samoa mini bundt cake recipe!

Mini Bundt Cake Recipe

How long to bake a bundt cake you might ask. It is just a different shape than if you used a round or rectangle 9×13″. Not only are they super pretty and cute but there is no longer any need to slice a piece as they will already be in one serving right out of the pan! A whole one takes about 50 minutes, not these.

We first made this banana bread bundt cake and it was so delicious and easy we decided to take it a step further. Cute was the word for the day so we used this pan next and OMG were they a hit. When you think outside the box you too might create your own favorite flavors with a mini bundt cake pan.

Samoa Bundt Cake

This is a just the variety we made this time. You can use this 2 ingredient cake recipe with any flavor of soda and cake mix you want.

  1. We used this 6 count Mini bundt cake pan but there are larger ones if you want to make more than that at a time.
    1. if you were to put one on top of the other to make our cake mix mini pumpkin bundt cakes
  2. 1 box of chocolate cake mix – or whatever flavor you want to make, there are tons of varieties
  3. A can of soda – Root beer goes great with chocolate, lemon lime soda goes with everything
    • If you are going to make this version you would then need

Of course you can opt to make a bundt cake instead of mini bundt cakes, the only difference would be the baking time. Use this same batter to make really little bites like mini chocolate cupcakes. The possibilities are endless.

How to Make Mini Bundt Cakes

It isn’t much different than the larger version other than the timing. I mean just like how long to bake mini cupcakes it is quite a bit less, more than half in this case.

I like making mini versions of these and our Champagne Cake because each one has more coating like coconut and caramel on it and you don’t have to bother with messy cutting. They are really pretty served this way on a plate, everyone gets their own and they’re already portioned out. If you love this samoas Girl Scout cookie cake you should make Thin Mint too!

I mean you could make this in a different pan that is larger or another shape. We have a guide to how long does it take to bake a cake here if you want to change it up after the first go around.

  • Combine the box of cake mix with root beer. 
  • Use a mixer on low to make sure it is mixed well. 
  • Spray inside of mini bundt cake pan holes well. 
  • Put about 1/2 c. of mix in each hole, about 1/2 full. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until they spring back when touched gently on the top. When the center comes out clean with a toothpick you are good.
  • Allow to fully cool. 
  • Use a pan on the stove with some shredded coconut in it and toast until lightly browned. 
  • Loosen edges of mini bundt cakes and carefully flip over on to remove them.
  • Put on cooling rack with parchment paper underneath to catch excess toppings. 
  • Pour caramel topping over each bundt followed by toasted coconut, then use a fork to drizzle chocolate on the very top. Serve!

Once you have this smaller version of a mini bundt pan you can let your imagination go wild. Use dark chocolate cake batter with root beer soda and chocolate glaze poured over the top. Add crushed Andes Mints for another popular cookie choice too right?

  • You can make a savory option too like our Bundt Pan Meatloaf. Just fill and they’re done in about 25 minutes!
  • Mini lemon bundt cakes with cream cheese frosting made with a block and powdered sugar is great during the summertime.
  • For added fun make mini chocolate bundt cakes, slice each in half and fill the middle with chocolate ganache. Then pour the frosting on.
  • Hummingbird mini bundt cakes might be a new one to you and that is always a hoot. I mean the name itself makes me smile.

Seriously, bundt cakes are the perfect gift for teachers and neighbors around the holidays. You can package one up in a cellophane bag with a cute tag on top and wait for the OOHhhhhhhs to come.

How to Save Leftover Mini Bundt Cakes

If you have some left that you aren’t going to be able to eat that day, you can keep them moist. Wait until they are completely cooled first. Then slide them into a freezer bag if they don’t have frosting on them and suck the air out. If they are already dressed you may want to use a sealed container instead. Keep on the countertop and eat within 3 days.
