Cinnamon Dolce Latte Mini Bundt #BundtBakers

Chocolate will always be my first, second, and third love but coffee flavoured desserts hold a special place in my heart too. Starbucks Java Chip ice cream, I still think about you. Often. Come back. I know my brother loves coffee and I wanted to make him a coffee cake for his birthday in March. I experimented with some muffins and they failed spectacularly. Normally I can eat my baking fails but not that time. OK. I still ate them slowly. But it wasn't pleasant. I did another test on a mini cake but the coffee flavour just wasn't right. 

When I saw this month's Bundt Bakers theme - Coffee Shop Bundts - I realised the universe really wanted me to make something coffee flavoured that I would love. And this time, I did. My large Bundt pans and I are in a fight (oh the sticking!) so I decided to go back to my mini pans. It made sense too since I've baked A LOT this past month and I really need to cut back on the sweets. I can't complain about my pants not fitting if I keep sampling all the things. The Black Forest cake that I had for dinner last night does not count. 

went with coffee and cinnamon rather than my buddy chocolate but I loved it anyway. Thanks for a great theme, Felice! Satisfy your coffee cravings by scrolling down to see what the other Bundt Bakers made. 

Cinnamon Dolce Latte Mini Bundt 
Yield: 6 mini 1 cup Bundts


1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup oil 
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder 

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk 
4 teaspoons instant coffee


Grease and flour six 1-cup mini Bundts. Grease well! Preheat oven to 350 F. 
Mix together butter, oil, and sugar until thoroughly combined. Beat in eggs one at a time and then add vanilla. 
Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. 
Dissolve the instant coffee in the buttermilk.
Alternate adding the flour mixture and the buttermilk mixture to the egg mixture. Start and end with the flour mixture. 

Pour the batter in prepared pans. Bake 15-20 mins or until a toothpick inserted into a cake comes out clean.
Glaze, if desired. I added a bit of cinnamon to some powdered sugar and then added enough water to get the glaze to a consistency that I liked. No recipe there because I'm still just guessing where glazes are concerned.
