Chocolate Bacon Banana Bundt Cake



(printable recipe)
 (makes 10-12 mini bundts)

2 1/2 cups Flour
1 2/3 cups Sugar
1 1/4 cups Mashed Bananas
2/3 cup Butter, softened 
2/3 cup Buttermilk
3 Eggs
1/2 cups Powdered Baking Chocolate
1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
6 Slices Bacon + 3 for garnish
1 Banana for garnish

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
4 cups Confectioner's Sugar
2 tablespoons clear Vanilla flavoring
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Chocolate Drizzle
 4.5 ounces Milk Chocolate Bar, chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

preheat oven to 350 degrees


bacon, oven cooking
Bake your bacon on a cookie sheet with parchment paper underneath. If you haven't baked bacon before, you will love it. It is so much faster that frying, and less messy also. The three pieces will take approx. 20 minutes, 10 minutes on each side. When you are done, let the parchment paper cool, then toss it in the garbage.
flour, sugar, bananas, butter
Start mixing together the flour, sugar, banana, and butter.
chocolate, butter, buttermilk, eggs, baking powder, baking soda
Add the buttermilk, eggs, chocolate, baking soda and baking powder.
mini bundt pan, shortening, baking brush
Use shortening to grease your bundt pan. I use a brush that is only used for baking to help me get in the nooks and crannies. After it is greased, place 1 tablespoon of flour in each mold and shake the flour around to coat. If some spots are not sticking, add a little more spray from your brush, flour and shake again.
chopped, bacon, garnish
Chop the bacon you are putting in the bundt cakes. You might use more or less bacon depending on how much you like it. Save 3 pieces for garnish.
cake batter, bacon, mini bundt
Spoon the batter into each mini bundt, about half way. Add some bacon to the batter. Add as much as you like. Use a toothpick to push each piece down in the batter. Add a little more batter on top.
bundt cakes, cooling, cooling rack, toothpick, release
Bake 10-15 minutes, or until done. Release around the cakes with a toothpick, then let cool in pan for 10 minutes.
chocolate, bacon, banana, mini bundt cakes, cooling rack
Remove cakes from pan and allow to cool completely.
confectioners sugar, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, clear vanilla
Mix the cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream together until smooth. In another bowl, add the chopped chocolate bar and the heavy whipping cream. Microwave for 20 seconds, then mix completely together. If more is needed, put back in for 5 second intervals. Add more cream if it is not to a drizzle consistency.
bacon, banana, garnish for mini bundt cake
Chop bacon and cut banana slices for garnish.
cream cheese frosting, chocolate, bacon, banana, mini, bundt cake
Add frosting to the cake by dragging it down the sides, using a Wilton M1 tip and a decorating bag.
chocolate, bacon, banana, bundt cake, garnished, bacon, banana, cream cheese frosting, chocolate drizzle
Drizzle chocolate over the white frosting. Sprinkle bacon pieces over the frosting. Add banana slice for garnish right before serving!

  12. I am without words. Without. Words. You don’t know me yet but this does not happen. I don’t even know where to start. Bacon pecan streusel? Bacon fat in place of some of the butter? Maple syrup in place of some of the sugar? Maple and cream cheese drizzle? That you actually uttered the words, too much bacon? Like that’s even possible. I adore everything about this masterpiece of a cake, Tux. So glad you have joined us! R Programming Training| DataStage Training| SQL Training | SAS Training | Android Training | SharePoint Training
