Almost Homemade Chocolate Banana Bundt with Chocolate Glaze

4 WWPP Posted by 5 years ago 16 Comments

OK, who am I kidding, this should be called the “Not At All Homemade Chocolate Banana Bundt with Chocolate Glaze” but “Almost” sounded better. ;)

Here’s the story…. I had a craving. I woke up Saturday with an itch to bake something chocolate. There was only one problem. No flour. None. Zip. ZERO. I used my last bit to make pancakes a few days before and I just kept forgetting to restock. I know. I know. What kind of cook am I? Allowing myself to run out of flour. The horror!

But I was in luck! I had some Vitalicious baking mixes! As you know I have that disease that does not allow me to make a recipe or following box directions when cooking so I yet again made this my own. Adding some mashed banana, using a bundt pan instead of muffins and replacing the chips with a fun glaze.

The result was SINFULLY delicious! The little guy fell in love with it too and we enjoyed it all weekend. I put the last piece in his lunch this morning. The husband? Well he didn’t even have a bite. NOT ONE BITE. The man is not HUMAN. How do you walk by that for 3 days and no want to take even one little taste. Seriously, sometimes I don’t know why I married him. He just doesn’t like FOOD! ugh.

Anyway… I can’t take all the credit for this one. Talysa sent me the idea a few months back and adding the mashed banana really stuck with me. It was genius!Almost Homemade Chocolate Banana Bundt with Chocolate Glaze

The Glaze

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. I now have a silicon one like this.

Mash the 2 overripe bananas and whisk with the 3 egg whites and a cup of water. Add the VitaMix and mix well to form the batter.

Pour the batter into the sprayed bundt pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

About half way through the baking process make the glaze by mix the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and tbsp of water together.

Once you pull the bundt out of the oven let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then turn it upside down and let it cool out of the pan.

This is by far the HARDEST part… the waiting…

Once cool. Pour the glaze over the cake.

If you are looking for a more homemade bundt I do have my own Banana Bundt Bread that I made up last year. Which I totally forgot about. I may have to revisit that recipe!

    Ooooo, I'm making this for our upcoming "ladies" potluck at church! It's always amazing how many women are counting points at these things and you'd never know until you put something out and tell them how points a serving is! BTW, I LOVE the pic of Ryan "licking" the cake. I can image his wishing you would stop with the photos and cut the cake. I'd be the same! LOL Reply

    That looks pretty good and the fact that its not bad for you is even better. My bf doesn't like food either, it drives me nuts. He would pass on cake too. I'm never too full for dessert!! Keep up the great ideas. Reply

    This looks so yummy. Can you only get vitalicious mixes online? Do you know of any store that sells them? Reply

    I have a bundt pan I received as a wedding gift almost a year ago and I still haven't used it. What's wrong with me?! Reply

    I just received my first Vitalicious products and they are declicious. Hard to find dairy-free mixes, and healthy ones too. Thanks, Roni! Can't wait to try this, but I'll have to buy a bundt pan! Reply

    Joining the discussion LATE but man oh man oh man... I made this tonight - minus the glaze (didn't have cocoa powder) and I made it in muffins because I didn't have a bundt pan either... These are incredibly moist, delicious and beyond wonderful. The only thing I added was 1/4 cup chocolate chips because I didn't have the glaze... I will make this OVER and OVER - in fact, I have two more ripe bananas and 1 more package of the vitalicious mix... and honestly, I preferred them with the added banana than without. SO HAPPY TO HAVE THIS!!! Thanks Roni! Reply
