Chocolate Bundlette Cakes

I’ve read somewhere from the web that there are signs that you are having your migraine. One of them is when you start craving for something chocolate. What do you think about that? I am a migraine girl and I don’t know if that’s true. Besides, I always crave for chocolate. 😀

thenotsocreativecook-MiniBundtCakesIt’s been quite long since I started craving for something chocolate – and that something is a chocolate frosting. I know that I am capable of making it, but I don’t know why I haven’t kept my hands on making. Instead, I bought chocolate custard, ate Nutella or bought chocolate cake from bakeshop. All the things I’ve eaten did not satisfy my craving. I don’t think I had any plans on baking chocolate cake until I got my bundlette pans.

thenotsocreativecook-MiniBundtCakes2Before January ended, I listed what to bake and cook and a flourless and eggless chocolate bundlette cake is one of them. Having my friend with me while deciding on what to bake for the weekend, she pointed out one recipe from Martha Stewart. The thing is she used bundt pan for the recipe. On the other hand, I don’t want to disappoint my friend. Well, not that she’ll be disappointed if I don’t do what she asked for, but it’s not all the time the she’s a sweet tooth. She loves her rice and main dishes so much that she doesn’t have that much of space for sweets. I was planning to bake both chocolate cakes – my choice and my friend’s. However, the cake requested by my friend was quite enough for my sweet tooth and her little sweet tooth. So I set aside my first choice.

I was really happy that I did what my friend asked for – the cake was so moist and soft… the frosting was something that satisfied my craving. The most important thing is she really loved the little cakes. 🙂

And to make the cakes more beautiful, I added some chocolate-covered strawberries.

  3. These looks so good! I need to get some of those bundlette pans. Thanks for sharing at What’d You Do This weekend? I hope you will join us again this Monday morning 🙂

  4. Utterly stunning, I’ve only ever had one migraine but I have heard chocolate and anything with caffeine is best avoided. These look so good, why don’t you get a pinterest plug in so people can pin easily from your image, just pinned one of yours from your share buttons. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays

  5. What a glorious chocolate glaze, I could eat one of those right now. Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!! Laura@Baking in Pyjamas

  6. I grew up with migraines, but never craved chocolate. However, I know caffeine helps some people’s migraines (and not others), so maybe it’s related to that. 🙂 And, more importantly, your cakes look absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for bringing them to FF, and I hope you had a wonderful weekend. 😀

      1. Oh, you know, weekend means migraine to me. 😦 I hope I’d feel better today so I could resume partying. 😀 Thanks, Aunt Juju. I’ve missed you. xx

  7. I didn’t know Bundlette was a word till a minute ago lol 🙂 I get to learn something new from you every time. Pretty looking Bundlettes though 🙂

  8. Oh my, those cakelettes look amazing. 🙂 I bet it’s just the right thing to bake when you are craving chocolate. And it is so pretty with that strawberry on top. Looks like out of a magazine really.
    I always crave chocolate and I don’t have migraine so something must be wrong with that.. 😀
    Happy FIesta Friday, Jhuls. 🙂

    1. This is indeed that right thing to bake when your tatste buds want something chocolatey. 😉
      Hmm, magazine photo? Wow! That’s a very huge compliment, Tina. Thanks for making me smile. xx Have a lovely week.

  9. Wait a second, WHAT is up with that first photo? That is one of the best shots I’ve ever seen! Amazing Jhuls!!! These little cakes are a flat out masterpiece. End of story. Thank you for bringing, now I need to go read the recipe!!!

    1. That’s so sweet, Sue. I am astonished by how people love that photo and it made me really happy. I think the tiredness I felt when I was taking that photo which took me more or less 30 minutes was gone already and I have moved on. I kept on telling my friend that taking that one photo alone made me really feel upset. But with you saying these sweet words, I could say that it’s worth it. 🙂 Hugs!! Have a safe week. xx

    1. I really don’t know what’s the connection between migraine and chocolate, Chef Julianna. Anyway, with migraine or not, I always crave for chocolate and it’s becoming more and more dangerous. 😀
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a safe week. xx

  10. I haven’t heard that about chocolate and migraines either but Jhuls, I am a migraine girl as well- how awful are they?! I have meds but they make me extra exhausted & nauseous… sort of like a migraine itself does to you! Anyway, enough about that, these look SOOO good!! Your pictures of them are absolutely amazing.. wow. I’m impressed…. I am IMPRESSED 😉

    1. When I used to taking the same meds over and over again, my body gets immune to it and the next thing I know, those meds won’t give the same effect as before. 😦
      Yes, enough of that migraine thing – thanks, Steph. I am glad that you loved these cakes. 😀 Have a lovely week. xx

    1. Exactly. But that’s how it is – whether I crave or not, this migraine comes and goes. So better crave and eat something delicious. 😀 Thanks, Margy. It’s so nice to see you here. xx

  11. Jhuls, I think for you, NOT having chocolate would set off a migraine! Your totes adorbs mini cakes are just too cute for words – love them and love the chocolate strawberries too. That glaze is to-die-for – hope you’ve made lots for everyone this week -now please may I have one and two of the strawberries too?! Happy Fiesta Friday!
