BundtBakers

This month we were given the assignment of making a Girl Scout cookie inspired bundt cake - and since I just recently made a mini Samoa bundt cake recipe, I automatically went to my next favorite flavor: Thin Mints! They are a classic, and I love anything with chocolate and mint together.


I finally had the chance to try out my new Stained Glass Bundt Cake pan and love it! I think the cake turned out so very pretty.


This cake is perfect - make sure you heavily grease your bundt pan before filling - I didn't have any issues with my larger bundt cake sticking because I triple sprayed the pan, but I did have issues with three out of four of my mini-bundt pans sticking when it was time to remove them from the pan because I didn't spray them as heavily (I'm guessing that's why they stuck, at least)!


This is a tender, light, and moist chocolate cake and the thin mints add both a lovely touch of mint flavor to the cake, and a nice crunchy crust along the bottom. It is a delicious combination!


The fudgy chocolate glaze and dusting of thin mint cookies on top just sends this one over the top. It is delicious. Perfect to eat just as it is, or with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream. This would be a wonderful treat to pack to take with you for lunch at work, send with your hungry teenager in his school lunch, serve to your coworkers, or of course your family for dessert! Lots of great options for this delicious and versatile bundt cake.


Enjoy all of these amazing Girl Cookie inspired cakes!

Chocolate Glazed Thin Mint Bundt Cake adapted from All You Need Is Love

Ingredients

Cake
1 cup of water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
5 TBS unsweetened cocoa
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup brewed coffee, room temp or cold
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 sleeve of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies, roughly chopped

Topping
Chocolate Fudge Glaze (recipe below)
4 Thin Mint cookies, crushed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease a flour a 12 cup bundt pan (I generously spray mine with Baker's Joy - I used a 9 cup bundt pan and filled 4 1-cup bundt compartments as well).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt.
  3. In a saucepan combine the water, oil and butter. Once butter is melted, stir in the cocoa powder until dissolved. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute and then remove from heat and stir into the flour mixture.
  4. Add the milk, coffee, and baking soda. Whisk until incorporated. Add the eggs and continue mixing until incorporated. Gently fold in the cookies and then pour into your prepared bundt pan. 
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until toothpicks inserted comes out clean (if you use mini bundts, they will need about 20 - 25 minutes). 
  6. Cool in pan for at least an hour before inverting carefully onto a serving plate. 
  7. After cake is cool and you have removed it from the pan, prepare the glaze below and drizzle over the top and sides of the cake and then sprinkle 4 thin mints, crushed, over the top.

    1. Thank you! The cookie crumbs really were the perfect "finishing touch" for this one - and I love it even more the next day because they've sort of melted into the chocolate glaze and infused the whole cake with a very subtle mint flavor. Delicious!
