Mini Bundt cakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease mini Bundt cake pan with butter or cooking spray to make things easier when removing these little cakes.
  2. In small bowl, combine almond milk and lemon juice. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes or so (this creates a dairy-free “buttermilk”).
  3. In saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter, stirring occasionally, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until dark bits begin to form and butter becomes fragrant and darker. Once done, remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes, then refrigerate until MOSTLY cooled; about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in bowl of electric stand mixer, beat together – on low speed – sugar, eggs (one at a time), and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, scraping the sides if needed. Add mashed bananas and continue to beat until smooth. Pour in cooled brown butter and beat until well incorporated and batter begins to thicken.
  5. In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. Pour half the dry ingredients into stand mixer bowl with egg mixture and mix on low speed until well incorporated. Add half of the “buttermilk” mixture and continue mixing until well combined.
  6. Pour remaining flour mixture into bowl and continue mixing until well combined. Mix in remaining “buttermilk” mixture.
  7. Pour batter into each Bundt cake cavity, about 1.5 tablespoons each (filling cavities only ¾ of the way). Use butter knife to spread around evenly.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, just until the center of each cake is cooked through. Tip: Use toothpick or baking skewer to test doneness; either should come out clean once inserted and removed.
  9. Remove Bundt cakes from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes before removing them pan to continue to cool.

Chocolate glaze

  1. Fill medium heat-proof bowl with chocolate chips. In small saucepan over medium heat, warm whipping cream until it begins to gently simmer (do not boil).
  2. Pour cream over chocolate chips and let it sit for 2-3 minutes to gently soften chocolate. Use rubber spatula to slowly stir ingredients together until completely combined and chocolate has melted.
  3. Once Bundt cakes are fully cooled, drizzle chocolate over each one to evenly cover the tops. Garnish each Bundt cake with a banana slice and chopped walnuts.
