Healthy Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes
Healthy Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes, topped with chocolate ganache and fresh berries. Doesn’t get any better than this!
Have I mentioned how amazing my kids are? I count the ones that have married into our family, as my kids!
I bought a couple of mini Bundt cake pans to do a cooking demonstration and decided it wasn’t what I wanted to use. So I sent home one of the pans with my son, Zac, and his new wife, Shayna.
Since we have Sunday dinner each week, I asked them to make me something yummy! Of course, I was kidding because I know how busy they are, but boy did they deliver!
I expected it to be one of Zac’s creations because he loves to cook and come up with new things. I was wrong! Shayna was the one that made these delicious treats. They were gone before we ate dinner!
