Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes With Maple Cinnamon Glaze ~ gluten, grain, dairy free

Anything mini and pumpkin is sure to catch our attention! And wouldn't these be cute to add to your Thanksgiving dessert table! 

These mini rustic looking pumpkin bundt cakes are from the grain free gluten free cookbook we own and love,

The recipe in the cookbook is for donuts, but we thought we would pull out the mini bunt pan and use that instead to make Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes for Fall!

Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes Recipe

5 large eggs
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup pure maple syrup
½ cup pumpkin puree (I used organic canned, if you use fresh make sure to get all of the excess liquid out of it)
¼ cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup blanched almond flour
½ cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
¼ teaspoon sea salt

Maple Cinnamon Glaze

1 tablespoon raw coca butter chopped
2 teaspoons palm shortening
2½ teaspoons cold maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon cinnamon {our addition}

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and oil the insides of your mini bundt pan really well. I find palm shortening works best.
Place the eggs, coconut milk, pumpkin, maple, coconut oil and vanilla in a blender and blend until frothy, about 15 seconds.
Add the dry ingredients, then blend on low for 10 seconds and on high for about 20 seconds.
*Lower powered blenders make take a little longer and may also require a few stops and scraping down the sides.
Pour the batter into the pan, filling each cavity 2/3 of the way full and bake for 20 minutes. Let them cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
Repeat with your leftover batter.

To Frost:
Maple Cinnamon: Melt the cacao butter over a double broiler filled with 1-inch of water. Once it has completely melted, remove it from the heat and whisk in the palm shortening and cinnamon addition. Add the cold maple syrup and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the cakes. Allow to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes, then place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes until the glaze has hardened.

These are best stored in the fridge for 3 days.

*Additions we made to original recipe: made mini bundt cakes instead of doughnuts. Added cinnamon to the glaze recipe.

                                                     Happy Fall Baking!!!

Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
Psalm 34:21
