Gluten Free Spiced Mini Bundt Cakes with Coffee Glaze

Are you craving something sweet, flavorful, and comforting to warm up these cold winter days? If you are, these gluten free spiced mini bundt cakes with coffee glaze might just be what you need. And best of all is that you only need simple ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen.

For the gluten free batter I used oat flour. I like using oat flour whenever possible because it’s high in nutrients such as protein and iron, unlike regular wheat flour. For this recipe, I purchased my oat flour, but you can also make it at home by putting some rolled oats through a coffee grinder. If you do this, make sure to sift the flour before using it to remove any large particles.

Note: Oats are naturally gluten free, however, sometimes they can get contaminated during processing or packaging. If you cannot tolerate gluten, I recommend you buy oats and oat flour that are certified gluten free.

I also added the following spices to the batter:

  • cinnamon
  • ginger
  • nutmeg
  • allspice
  • cloves

To make the glaze, I mixed a little bit of espresso with icing sugar. The coffee flavor was strong but not too intense, and it really complemented the spiced aroma of the cakes. However, if you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, I would suggest using instant coffee.

Make sure the glaze the bundt cakes as soon as they cool. In doing so, you create a barrier that prevents them from drying. Moreover, I would also recommend eating them within 3 days of baking.
