My mini bundt cake pan (and its first use)

I bought a mini gugelhupf pan (also known as bundt cake) from Aldi a couple of weeks ago, and got around to using it this weekend.

First things first, I had to find a recipe (that didn't include yeast - none in the house or bananas - which I do not like).  Found one on

1 cup butter,softened
1 cup superfine sugar
4 medium eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F
2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Slowly add the beaten eggs and mix together.
3.Gradually fold in the flour and the cocoa powder mixing well. Spoon all of the mixture into the bundt cake pan.
4.Bake for about 50 minutes. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

This recipe made enough for 6 mini bundt cakes and 4 1/2 cupcakes (regular size) and only took 20 minutes to cook.  I left them in their pan for 10 mins to cool, and then attempted to turn them out.

Unfortunately the non-stick + oil spray wasn't enough and they took a bit of effort to get out, and used a bit of icing as glue to stick them back together - still look and taste delicious though.
