- 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2⁄3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups mashed bananas
- 1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
for the glaze:
- 4 oz. cream cheese, softened and cubed
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. milk
- Preparation: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Make sure you have your stand mixer ready with a paddle attachment, or a bowl with a hand mixer.
- Mixing the Wet Ingredients: Begin by beating the eggs and sugar together until well combined. Incorporate the vegetable oil, vanilla, mashed bananas, and crushed pineapple into the mixture, mixing on a low setting.
- Adding the Dry Ingredients: Without turning off your mixer, slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Continue to mix on low until all the dry ingredients are integrated.
- Finishing Touches: With a spatula or wooden spoon, fold in the toasted chopped pecans, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
- Baking: Generously spray two mini Bundt pans with baking spray. Pour the batter into each well, filling them about 3⁄4 full. Place in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Once baked, allow the Bundts to cool on a wire rack.
- Preparing the Glaze: In your stand mixer or with a hand mixer, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Beat until you have a smooth and creamy glaze.
- Finishing the Bundts: Once the mini Bundts have cooled, generously drizzle the glaze over each one. For an extra touch of flavor and presentation, sprinkle some additional toasted chopped pecans on top.
