Mini Chocolate Ganache Pumpkin Patch of Bundt Cakes

This recipe is an old family favorite. It’s been a family tradition for years….because it’s one of the best cakes EVER!

It’s made with sour milk.  At first, I thought sour milk??  Then I learned that sour milk is not the same as spoiled milk.

A Pumpkin Patch of Mini Pumpkins

Sour milk is simply milk mixed with either lemon juice or vinegar to give it a tart flavor, aka buttermilk. I will refer to as buttermilk, it sounds better than saying sour milk.

It will curdle a tiny bit, and that’s what it’s suppose to do.

Here’s a tip, replace milk with buttermilk in most cake recipes for a wonderful, homemade flavor.
