Mini bundt cakes are fun to make—they’re really easy and they look so fancy! They make a special little treat for birthdays, tea time, or just any time you want a yummy dessert. These Mini Orange Bundt Cakes are really good, and full of orange flavor. They’re made with orange zest, orange extract, and orange juice, so no wonder they taste so good!
These mini bundts are also topped with a yummy, creamy orange glaze, so that’s another reason they’re a real treat! If you don’t happen to have a mini bundt pan, you could use a jumbo muffin pan, but they won’t look quite as pretty. They’ll still taste great, though! 🙂
Mini Orange Bundt Cakes
MINI ORANGE BUNDT CAKES by NancyC
Makes 6 mini bundt cakes
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 to 2 1/2 Tablespoons orange zest
1 teaspoon orange extract
1/3 cup orange juice
1 3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1 Tablespoon orange juice (for a thinner glaze, add an additional teaspoon)
1/2 Tablespoon orange zest
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease one mini Bundt cake pan of 6; set aside.
In large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, orange zest, orange extract, and orange juice, mixing everything until combined.
In small bowl, blend flour and baking powder, then add to the butter/sugar mixture in the large bowl. Finally, add the sour cream or plain Greek yogurt and mix everything until just combined.
Divide batter evenly between prepared mini bundt cups (about 2/3 to 3/4 full) and bake at 350˚F for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let mini bundts cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then remove from pan to a wire rack and let cool completely (you may have to loosen the edges of the bundts with a knife so they’ll come out easily). Drizzle with Orange Glaze.
For Orange Glaze, mix the confectioners’ sugar, heavy whipping cream, orange juice, and orange zest together and drizzle over cooled mini bundts.

I love citrus-flavored desserts, especially in the spring and summer. The citrus taste is so refreshing! Are you a fan of citrus desserts too? What’s your favorite?
