Cake Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (120 g)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (55 g)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda (3.75 mL)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1.25 mL)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (2.5 mL)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (120 g)
  • 3/4 cup milk (180 mL)

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (120 mL)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar (35 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (2.5 mL)
  • peppermint candies, crushed


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 12 mini silicone fluted bundt molds (or pans) with nonstick spray, place on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the remaining cake ingredients one at a time, making sure to mix thoroughly in between each addition. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides as needed until thoroughly incorporated. Disburse the batter evenly between the bundt molds and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely on a wire rack before removing from the molds.
  3. Using the whisk attachment, mix the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and peppermint extract on medium speed until the mixture thickens, but is slightly runny. Top each cake with the frosting and sprinkle with peppermint candies.

Recipe Notes
