Mini Angel Food Bundt Cakes

Spring has officially sprung, y’all! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ Hallelujah! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป The days of snow and cold, dreary weather are (almost ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป) behind us, and we are all about it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Spring is one of the prettiest times of the year. All the greenery begins to brighten up again, flowers start to bloom, pastel shades of literally everything start to line the aisles of every grocery store and craft shop…oh don’t act surprised that we went there. Of course we did!? ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is a baking and craft blog, what do you expect? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Candy, baking supplies, craft materials are ALWAYS on our mind. Anyways, you guys get the idea. The sun is finally shining, people! ๐ŸŒค In other words…winter hibernation period is over!

Easter isn’t too far away either, and we are all about it! For some reason, a lighter dessert has always been our go-to option for this holiday celebration. Be it the weather, or summer right around the corner…who knows why…but something light and sweet has been on our mind.

Inspiration behind today’s featured post comes from our family’s deep love of Angel Food cake. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ˜‡ Isn’t it the best!? It’s light, full of sweet flavor, and can be topped any way you want…with powdered sugar, the classic choice of Cool Whip, a richer whipped cream, all the fresh fruit you can get your hands on…heck, we even dabble in a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla bean ice cream ๐Ÿจ if we really want to get crazy.

Angel Food cake is easily purchased pre-made at your local grocery store or bakery, but are you aware of how easy it is to make at home? Seriously! It’s not only easy, it’s sooo much better homemade, warm, right out of the oven. ๐Ÿคค

We decided to turn our homemade classic version into a smaller, personalized treat via a mini bundt cake pan! Voila! Mini Angel Food Bundt Cakes for the win!

Serve these at your upcoming Easter brunch, lunch or dinner and everyone will remember you for it…trust us! They. Are. Perfect!

We repeat…they are simple to make. No, really…they only take about 20 minutes or so to prep, and bake 18 to 20 minutes in the oven. Plus, look how cute they are!?

We used the Nordic Ware Heritage Mini Bundt Cake pan, but feel free to use whatever design you prefer. That’s part of the fun…there are so many options out there! ๐Ÿ™‚

We decided to go wild ๐Ÿ˜œ and top ours with mini Hershey’s milk chocolate Easter egg candies and powdered sugar. You do you!

That’s right, y’all…spread your bad-ass babe wings, you have homemade Angel Food cake to make!๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ

Notes

1. Be sure to spoon and level your flour. Too much flour will make the cakes a bit too heavy. 2. Depending how full you fill your cavities, you can get about 10-12 mini cakes out of this. This is approximate, depending on the shape of your bundt cake pan. Using the above pan, I am able to bake 12 mini cakes. 3. If you prefer, feel free to make a full sized cake. Bake 30 - 35 minutes (or until golden brown). ๐Ÿ™‚
