Breakfast Mini Bundts #BundtBakers

These muffin size mini bundts are the perfect grab and go breakfast.  Made with the scraps remaining in all those cereal boxes crammed in your pantry, it serves a dual purpose.  You clean out your cupboards and you can give your family a breakfast treat that you feel good about.

It is time for this month's edition of Bundt Bakers.  Come take a peek........

This month's Bundt Bakers is being hosted by Felice of All That's Left Are The Crumbs.  Felice asked us to create a bundt that contains cereal.  

I don't know about you but I always seem to have several boxes of cereal with about a 1/2 c. or less of cereal in the bottom that just languishes there.  Normally, I will give it to the chickens as a special treat but this month they got cheated out.  

This month they hens got cheated.  This 2 cups of assorted cereal went into these mini bundts.  You can use any cereal that you want just keep in mind that if the cereal is sweetened you will want to adjust your sugar accordingly.

Let's take a look at what cereals the others have used to create a bundt today.....

Since I was using cereal, I decided to use my muffin size bundt pan and make breakfast bundts.  You could make this in a full size bundt pan and even add frosting if you want.  I decided to just sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar over them and call it a day.  I heard no complaints.  

They bake up quickly, just like muffins, making this the perfect breakfast food.  The entire process takes less than half an hour and then you can let them cool while you finish your morning routine.

Once they are cooled and turned out from the pan, you have these adorable little bundts that are portable and delicious.  Serve them as is or sprinkle with some powdered sugar, as desired.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.
