Lay your eyes on the cutest mini bundt cakes you’ve ever seen. Made with Aunt Sue’s famous vanilla pound cake recipe, these moist and buttery bundt cakes are the most delicious treats, so spoil yourself today!
We are big fans of Aunt Sue’s famous pound cake around here. And there’s only one thing better than one pound cake – several mini pound cakes! These mini bundt cakes look almost too cute to eat. But when you take a bite, you’re rewarded with a taste of the moistest and most buttery vanilla pound cake ever.
Fortunately, it’s so easy to whip up one of Aunt Sue’s famous pound cakes. In fact, I bet you even have the list of simple ingredients at home right now: eggs, butter, sugar, flour, whipping cream, and vanilla extract. All you have to do is cream the ingredients together, pour them into mini bundt cake molds and they’ll be ready in just 30 minutes.
You can also go wild and serve your mini bundt cakes however you like. I love a slice of pound cake with Mama’s custard sauce, but you could also serve these with a simple vanilla icing or a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries.
- All-purpose flour
- Whipping cream
- Vanilla extract
Grease your mini bundt pan molds with cooking spray and set out the eggs and butter to allow them to come to room temperature.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for one minute after each addition.
Sift the flour and add it to the creamed mixture, and with the whipping cream. Mix together completely.
Next add in the .
Fill your bundt pan molds halfway with the cake batter and place them in a cold oven. Turn the oven to 300 and bake for 30 minutes or when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool the mini pound cakes completely before you take them out of the bundt cake pan.
How to make a simple vanilla icing
Drizzle Mama’s custard sauce on these mini bundt cakes for an amazing flavor and texture.
Drizzle the custard sauce immediately over the cooled cakes.
You can also add a bit of whipped cream to each after adding the custard if you like.
- Store your mini bundt cakes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
- You can also freeze the unglazed cakes in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
- If you don’t have mini bundt cake pans, you can use a muffin pan instead.
- Interested in mini lemon bundt cakes instead? Add two tablespoons of lemon juice and the zest of two lemons to your bundt cake batter. You can also use lemon juice in the icing instead of milk (with ), to enhance the lemon flavor.
- For gluten-free mini bundt cakes, use almond flour instead. You could also substitute the vanilla extract for almond extract.
- You could also opt to drizzle each with a instead. All you need is 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream (slowly melted in the microwave) combined with 2/3 cup of semi-sweet chips.

I only have dark mini bundt pans. I noticed that you are using a lighter color. Will my pans be too dark to use for this recipe? Thank you.
I would check them after 20 minutes. If not done then check again after another 5 minutes.
I’ve made many delicious pound cakes in my life. Tried and true recipes that were delicious, but I’ve never had a pound cake recipe that used heavy cream. Why have I not seen this recipe that uses heavy cream? I can’t wait to bake this and taste the difference using heavy cream.
Happy New Year everyone!
Love the lemon idea! I do have a question… the outside of my mini pound cakes seem tough or “chewy”. My regular pound cakes do not. Any suggestions?
How good would these be with fresh strawberries? I’m saving this recipe for berry season for sure!
Loooove pound cake! I have all of the ingredients, but don’t have a mini bundt pan. I wonder if I can use muffin tins instead?
You sure can! Just watch them as the timing is likely going to be a little different since the cakes tend to be bigger than the muffins.
I have actually made the aunt Sue Pound Cake and it was very good! And I have a mini Bundt cake pan I’ve never used! So I’m going to dig it out and try these! And that custard is so good!
