Gingerbread Oatmeal Mini Bundt Cakes

Holiday time is here, and it’s definitely my most favorite time of year. I wait all year for it to arrive again. As a food blogger, I start celebrating Christmas as early as July, as I prepare for posts on my blog. Testing out recipes, handing out the results to friends and neighbors. They all think I’m nuts, but they love the treats they get.

One of my favorite things to do at holiday time is the baking. There is something wonderful about the warmth of the kitchen and the fantastic smells that fill the air. And holiday flavors are some of my favorite; gingerbread, peppermint, pumpkin and cinnamon among so many others. I also love trying new oatmeal recipes using the scents and flavors of the season.

Do you ever smell something and it takes you back to a favorite memory? When I smell Cinnamon, it reminds me of my grandparents home when I was younger. She wasn’t a baker, but the smell of Cinnamon filled the house from candles and pot pourri. And pine makes me think of my best friends house growing up. They always had a real pine tree and the smell always filled the house. Gingerbread makes me think of a restaurant one my dearest friends in Texas took me to when we lived there. You could have all the gingerbread you could eat, and boy did I get my fill. Every. Single. Time.

These delicious Gingerbread Oatmeal Mini Bundt Cakes take me to that place, the sweet and spicy flavors and the ginger aroma just make me feel like I am back in that restaurant again. They also remind me how much I actually miss Texas and my sweet friends there. That’s what holidays are about, memories, reconnecting and sharing with those we love.

When we were at Target the other day, I picked up the two limited edition canisters of Quaker Oats. While I grabbed both types, this recipe specifically used Quaker Oats Quick Oats. I grabbed both in 42oz size that are available exclusively at Target for a Limited Time Only.

  1. Gingerbread totally takes me back to the holidays, too! Isn’t it funny how certain smells and flavors do that? I love baking with oats at this time of the year, so I totally need to make these mini bundt cakes soon! #client

    1. I’m a huge fan of oatmeal, and I love changing flavors and making them seasonal. Baking with them is even better, they just add that certain touch a recipe needs. Happy holidays!
