Step-By-Step Instructions

In this section we are going to go into detail about what you need to do to make this delicious cake for yourself (see also “Best Mini Bundt Cake Recipes“). 

So, without further ado, let us dive right in and get started!

Turn Your Oven On

You need to start off by preheating your oven, we recommend that you turn it up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Butter Your Muffin Pan

Before you do anything else, you are going to need to butter a muffin tin with about twelve holes. Do not go over the top with buttering the pan, just a light coating will do. 

Separate Your Eggs

You are going to need to separate your eggs next. Put your egg whites into a big bowl and your yolks into a separate bowl. 

Whisk The Egg Whites

With your separated egg whites you should add just a pinch of salt and beat it until you have stiff peaks formed. 

Beat Your Egg Yolks

Add a little sugar and vanilla to the egg yolks and beat the mixture until it is a pale yellow and it looks nice and fluffy.

Combine Flour, Baking Powder And Yolk Mixture

You are going to need to sift your flour and baking powder into the egg yolk mixture. Make sure that all the ingredients are well combined before you move on. 

Fold And Beat Egg Whites

Take your beaten egg whites and lightly fold and beat them into your batter. Make sure that you do this by adding only one third at a time. 

Fill The Muffin Pans

Now that you have your batter, you must fill the buttered muffin tin. Each of the holes should be filled about half way.

We recommend that you use an ice cream scoop to do this as it is easier, and the quantity is about right for your muffin tins. 

Bake Your Cake

Put your batter in the oven and allow it to bake for about fifteen minutes or until your cake looks lightly golden on the top. 

Allow Your Cakes To Cool

Before you remove your cakes from the muffin tin you really need to allow them to cool.

Once they are not too hot you need to take the cakes out of the tin and place them on a wire cooling rack until they are completely cool.

Make The Filling

While your cake cools you can now start making your filling. Start off by melting the chocolate and allowing it to melt. 

Whisk The Cream

Once your chocolate has melted you can then whisk the cream until it is soft and thick. Add mascarpone to your whipped cream at this point and mix until it is thick and firm. 

Add The Chocolate To Your Cream Mixture

Once your cream and mascarpone has mixed in you can whip in your melted white chocolate. Do not over mix, just make sure everything is incorporated properly. 

Assemble The Cake

Now that you have all your components ready, all you need to do is assemble your cakes.

Start off by cutting the cakes in half and piping in your cream mixture. Top the cake with cream, strawberries and kiwi. Rinse and repeat!
