Chocolate Velvet Bundts with Ganache - I Like Big Bundts 2
Chocolate Velvet Pound Cake

It's Day #2 of I Like Big Bundts - a crazy marathon of Bundts. I hope you have November 15th circled on your calendar as National Bundt Day!

I used my mini bundt pans to make these chocolate bundts. I have one that has 12 mini-bundts without the hole (more like a pretty upside down cupcake) and one that has 6 mini-bundts with holes in the center.

Topped with chocolate ganache, this is rich pound cake with a tight crumb.

This is from the beautiful book The Art and Soul of Baking by Cindy Mushet and the folks at Sur La Table. I'm glad I bought it...it is now full of post-it notes! It got a Starred review in Publisher's Weekly!

This looks yummy - I don't have any mini bundt pans and the original recipe doesn't state a pan size (that I could find, anyways) - what's the volume of your mini and individual pans - I'm guessing 1 cup and 1/2 cup? I have several mini loaf pans that might work as a substitution, but the volume varies from pan to pan, lol.

I bought a mini bundt pan in the States during our vacation to Pennsylvania, and this recipe is now in the oven baking merrily away. It looks totally decadent :D
