  • 1 Cup Baby Ruth®, chopped into ¼” pieces, lightly coated in flour
  • 1 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 3/4 Cups butter, melted
  • 3/4 Cups sour cream
  • 2 Teaspoons Mexican Vanilla, pure not extract

For the Glaze

  • 1/2 Cup butter, soft
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Mexican Vanilla, pure not extract
  • 4 Ounces caramel chips, melted and warm

For the Topping

  • 1 Cup whipped heavy cream, chilled
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 Cup Baby Ruth®, chopped into ½” pieces
  • 4 Tablespoons caramel dessert syrup

Directions

For the Cakes

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Spray 6 mini Bundt cake pans with food release spray.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and Baby Ruth® in a large bowl.  

In a mixer, add the eggs, butter, sour cream, vanilla, and whip on medium-high speed until smooth and fluffy.  

Reduce the mixer speed to low, and slowly add the flour mixture until just combined, but no lumps remain.  

Fill the Bundt cake pans ¾ full.

Tap the pans against the counter to remove air bubbles.

Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Place pans on a rack until they are cool to the touch.  

Then run a knife around the edge of the pans and turn cakes onto the rack to cool completely. 

For the Glaze

In a mixer, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Stop the mixer and slowly add the melted caramel chips and caramel syrup.  

Mix again until a smooth and shiny glaze forms. 

For the Topping

In another mixer, combine the heavy cream with powdered sugar and whip until soft peaks form.  

With a piping bag and tip, fill the center of the bundt cakes with whipped cream.

Drizzle the glaze over the top of the Bundt cakes and apply the chopped Baby Ruth® pieces.

Drizzle with the remaining caramel sauce.
