These mini Apple Honey Fonio Bundt Cakes are a delicious way to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, or just to enjoy as a festive fall treat. Combining fonio with sweetened almond milk gives the cakes a slight nuttiness, and the honey drizzle adds a little extra pop of sweetness on top. Dare you to eat just one.

In a small pan over medium-high heat, melt the cold butter. When the butter is foamy, add diced apples and stir. Add 1 tablespoon of honey, a pinch of salt, and cinnamon. Stir to mix well. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the apples begin to soften. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly before adding to the wet ingredients.

Allow cakes to cool for 5 minutes in the tin before removing them to fully cool on a rack. While the cakes are cooling, make the glaze. In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar, honey, and milk together until smooth. Once the cakes are fully cooled, drizzle the glaze on top and enjoy.
