Chicken Farm Baker's Project # 35: Sweet Enhancer! Rum and coffee mini Bundt with chocolate sauce

 Oh! I know that there are so many things in life that I want to do and I almost forgot about the Chicken Farm Baker's Project of this month, ^^". Lucky for me that, my friends always remind me about it and when I come home, I know that I have to do it.


The Chicken Farm Baker's Project # 35: Sweet Enhancer! is about the cake and sauce, Gift (the host of this month) wanted all of us to bake a cake (that contains fruit) and serve it with some sauce that will make the cake more delicious. the problem is I came home without preparing and I didn't have any fresh fruit at home ^^".
So I had to think about anything that I could make (after searching both my fridge and my cupboard, haha), and I finally I saw the raisin, well, it's a kind of fruit too, hehe.
I adapted the recipe from ................. and added the chocolate coffee sauce to make the recipe appropriate for this month project :)
The cake is rich with rum (both from the rum soaked raisin and the additional rum that had been mix into the batter), but the flavor is more complex with the bitterness and fragrance from the coffee and when serve it with chocolate coffee sauce, it's more delicious.
I serve mime with cream cheese ice cream and grill candied orange ^^, they go very together, I think they give me a tropical feeling ^^.
 I really enjoy it, and hope you will love it too.

hi pook,
i made this today, but my bundt only brown on the top, the bottom never turn to brown color, if bake it longer the top will burn.
After i took out from silicone mold, and flip it over, the top got very light and the color is not even and very ugly for presentation.
Could you tell me whats wrong?
I use silicone mold too , i got them from ebay.
Thanks Pook.

There are many brands of silicone molds, some of them don't give good brown. ^^"
You can try placing the silicone mold on metal sheet pan (to add more heat). If you can I suggest Silikomart brand.

So sad i bought many many shape of silicone molds from ebay before i knew they dont give good brown.
