These are the cutest little cakes my eyes have ever laid eyes on, I just may have found my newest way to treat my friends and family.  I bought this pan at a garage sale but never used it, I am a sucker for anything baking.  You can buy similar ones like this, or this, or this, depends on how much you want to spend.  Or just check out your local garage sales this upcoming spring and score an ultra cheap one like I did, probably only spend $1.00. Either way you are sure to bake up some delightful goodies!

Now onto the actual chocolate bundt recipe.  Its simple, yet absolutely delicious chocolate cake and the added ganache is so smooth.  Do not be afraid of the added coffee in the cake coffee really does intensify the chocolate flavor!  

A simple shortcut that I make with two of the ingredients in this recipe is DIY cake flour and buttermilk.  

For the cake flour: using your 1 cup measuring cup, add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, then fill the rest of the 1 cup with flour.  

For Buttermilk: using your 1/2 cup measuring cup, add 1 tablespoons of vinegar, then fill the rest of the 1 cup with milk, let sit for 5-10 minutes.  

Whola your homemade, and cheap DIY cake flour and buttermilk!

Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Muffins

Fresh made and homemade chocolate chip muffins. The smell, the taste, absolutely DELICIOUS.  These muffins are truly amazing.  You can’t go wrong the simple muffin base is moist and flavorful and the perfect amount of cholcolate chips.  Every bite you get chocolate chips, there it not shortage here.

I make all my muffins in silicone muffin cups.  They are easy to use and come out clean.  Another way to make these muffins is into mini.  Mini muffins are great for my younger kids.  I always feel like I am getting more out of a recipe when I use the mini muffin pan.  Plus the mini muffins are so cute:)  You can guess about 3 mini muffins makes about 1 regular size muffin.  So this recipe will yield about 36-42 mini muffins.
