These adorable mini cakes are brimming with sweet and smoky maple essence and crunchy toasted pecans. They’re deliciously soft and moist, and they’re a lot easier to make than they appear.




  • 1 pkg Williams Sonoma Maple Pecan Quick Bread
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs


  • 2 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate, finely chopped
  • gold sprinkles or finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 34 tsp milk or cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Nonstick cooking spray should be used to grease the cakelet pan. Place aside.
  2. Combine the cake mix, melted butter, and milk in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the eggs one at a time until the batter is smooth.
  3. Fill the cavities of the prepared pan with the batter, leaving 1/2 cm space at the top. Tap the pan gently on a towel-covered counter to settle the batter and remove air bubbles.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cakes comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
  5. Wipe out the pan, re-grease it, and repeat with the remaining batter.
