I know gingerbread is traditionally associated with Christmas, but I just love making these mini gingerbread bundt cakes all winter long. The warm gingerbread spices feel like a hug in a cake. I also think that these mini cakes are perfectly sized: large enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but small enough that you don't have to share ;) I use mini bundt cake pans, which you can buy on amazon, or your local department store. You could also try baking this recipe in a greased cupcake/muffin tin, which will give you mini round cakes.

I like to top my bundt cakes with powdered sugar and candied pecans for an extra crunch.
