Mini Strawberry Bundt Cakes

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend and I wanted to whip up something pretty as a picture, and of course delicious, to celebrate all the wonderful Mums in our lives!

Mini Strawberry Bundt Cakes for Mothers Day

I know it’s a bit of a cliche, but when I think Mother’s Day I am inspired by anything feminine, pink and floral – and this recipe ticks all those boxes.


I recently came into possession of a mini bundt pan, and decided these ornamentally shapes cakes would be perfect for the occasion.


I am unashamedly girly sometimes, so pink was the natural theme for the day and therefore I decided to flavour and colour these cakes with fresh strawberries. This recipe produces a light and fluffy cake that’s not too sweet, and it’s one of my go-to desserts right now.


With a final drizzle of cream cheese icing and a flower on top, these beautiful little desserts are the perfect way to celebrate the special person in your life.


If strawberries are not in season where you live, frozen strawberries work just as well (although make sure you defrost them first).


While the strawberries do a great job of tinting the cake batter pink, if you want to amp up the colour a bit more then feel free to add in a few drops of pink food colouring. The rose-hued cakes contrast beautifully against the white cream cheese icing.

    How many mini bundts does this recipe make? I only want to make 2.

    • Reply Swah March 27, 2017 at 10:40 am

      Hi Mary, this recipe made 6 small-medium bundts – it will depend on the size of your mini bundt pan. However if you only want to make 2, I would halve the recipe and see how you go – you may have a little bit of batter leftover

    How do you know what flowers are edible?

    • Reply Swah August 29, 2017 at 9:46 am

      Hi Donna, a lot of high end grocery stores and farmer’s markets now sell specific “edible flowers” so you can be assured that they won’t make you sick! I would only use those in my cooking. Otherwise, I sometimes get homegrown flowers that I am assured are pesticide-free and use them to decorate the cake, but I avoid eating them

    Can I substitute the caster sugar for beat up granulated sugar? I don’t have caster so I was wondering if I can just put granulated sugar in the food processor. Thanks!

      Hi Amy, if you find it difficult to buy caster sugar then yes you can definitely pulverise the granulated sugar in the food process until it’s finer. Great idea! :)
