Mini chocolate Bundt cakes









I can see what are you thinking:  Here is she again with her berries lol
And is true.
But if you know me you  have noticed this is a berries blog right?
Im teasing:)
But I love berries, and in this case is only for garnish!
I found these currants time ago and I have to use:)
 I found these mini chocolate bundt cakes and
 are amazing!
All were in love with this recipe!

Ingredients

For the Cake:
 
1½ cups brewed coffee
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup natural cocoa or chocolate powder
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
butter for the bundt pans
 
For the ganache
 
1 cup good quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped or
 semi sweet chocolate chip morsels.
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
some berries for garnish
 
    Method
 Preheat oven to 180°c . Brew 1 1/2 cups of coffe. While the coffe is brewing, butter the bundt pans and then dust with cocoa powder.
In a a microwave safe bowl melt the butter fro 20 seconds. Mix with the coffe and cocoa poder. Stir with a wire whisk. Once eveything is combined, add the sugar and whisk until it has disolved. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and set aside to cool about 5 minutes.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix.
In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and vanilla.
Whisk the eggs into the chocolate mixture. Slowly add the flour mixture and continue to whisk.
Once all the ingredients have been combined you will left with a batter with the consistency of thick cream. 
Put the batter into the mini bundt pans (I used silicona mini pans but any bundt pan is OK)
Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove the bundt pans from the oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes. Once cooled, gently run a butter knife  around the sides of each cake to gently remove from the pan. Most likely, you will have an  cake excess that yonu can cut .
Place mini bundt cakes on a wire rack.
 
    Ganache
 Place the chocolate pieces in a saucepan combine the heavy cream and vanilla extract and heat to bain Marie. Cook until small bubbles appear on the outside edge of the cream.
Cut the fire. Pour the chocolate over the hot cream and using a wire whisk gently stir until all of the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
Drizzle the ganache on the cooled bundt cakes, top with some berries (fresh or frozen)
