Moist pineapple and lime mini bundt cakes, served on rum and brown sugar grilled pineapple slices topped with whipped coconut cream
So happy to be back in my kitchen, experimenting and making a total mess 🙂 Oh, yes! I should get a photo after making a recipe…my kitchen always looks like a bomb has exploded.
Soo…what have I been up to lately?
I have been working like crazy to finish my first cookbook! After sharing Greek pumpkin and feta pie and the Aussie meat pie recipes last year and earlier this year, I had many readers asking for more unique pie recipes and decided to create an entire cookbook for my all time favorite savory pie recipes from all around the world. Hang on tight, I am almost done and will have my cookbook ready very very soon.
Between the cookbook and everyday packed things to be done, I have been obsessed with these moist pineapple and lime mini bundt cakes, served on grilled pineapple topped with whipped coconut cream. I know, it sounds crazzyyy good!
I had this new dessert recipe in mind for ages now and finally, yesterday was that day! The day I have stuffed myself with too many to say here moist mini cakes 🙂 I love their freshness from lime and refreshing sweetness from pineapple. Perfect combination!
These pineapple and lime mini bundt cakes are so easy to make and honestly it takes more or less 30 minutes to make this dessert recipe, with grilled pineapple and whipped cream time included. The batter is really simple, made with buttermilk (makes the cakes so moist) and it takes less than 10 minutes to whisk it together.
I love quick recipes made from scratch and it cannot get any easier or quicker than making this recipe. You just add buttermilk, vegetable oil, sugar, flour, lime juice and some zest, pineapple juice, baking soda to a bowl, whisk together and pour it in prepared mini bundt cakes mold and bake. While the cakes are in the oven for 15 minutes, you grill pineapple slices and whip coconut cream. That’s it! No tricks, everything just plain simple.
These pineapple and lime mini bundt cakes, served on rum and brown sugar grilled pineapple slices topped with whipped coconut cream are my new favorite dessert recipe when throwing a party or just have friends over. They look fantastic and so easy to put together.
