Mini Hazelnut Cakes for two

A tender crumb and nutty flavor, these mini cakes are amazing with a good cup of Green Tea.

To make the texture even better, allow the batter to sit for about 30 minutes. This allows the baking powder and soda a chance to lift and lighten our heavier based gluten free flours. If you have time to do it, you will be amazed at the results.

Mini gluten free hazelnut bundt cakes

Mini Hazelnut Cakes


1/3 cup milk
2 tsp. cider vinegar
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup hazelnut flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp. baking powder ( we like Rumford’s aluminum free)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1 large egg
2 Tbsp. oil
1/3 cup honey, warm in the microwave so it flows easier
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


Lightly grease 2 4-inch mini bundt pans, set aside

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the milk and vinegar. Set aside for 4 minutes.

In another medium sized bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and nutmeg.

To the milk mixture, add the egg, oil, honey and vanilla and beat with a handheld mixer for 2 minutes. Slowly add the flour mixture and beat until combined. Stir in chopped hazelnuts.

Pour the batter evenly into the bundt pans and set aside for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees when the batter has rested for 15 minutes. If you don’t have time to wait for the batter to rest, preheat the oven before you begin making the batter and then pop the pans in after you have filled them.

After the 30 minute rest, place the pans in the oven and bake for 24 to 26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Let the cakes cool in the pans for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cook completely.

You can also bake these in really mini bundt pans, the 2 1/2″ size. The batter will make 6. Or use regular muffin cups and bake in those. It will also make 6. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes instead.

Drizzle with a powdered sugar icing or any chocolate icing. You can microwave ready-made gluten free icing until it will pour. Then drizzle over your cakes.

Sometimes we don’t need to make everything from scratch, thankfully.

But you certainly can.
