Recipe: mini lemon bundt cakes

Loading...

Everybody loves cake…but they love it even more when it looks as pretty as a picture. These mini lemon bundt cakes are the perfect size for one, and look ridiculously attractive. The simple cake mixture can be topped with a number of icings, garnishes or adornments.

We suggest topping with one of three zesty lemon icings:

  • lemon glaze
  • lemon drizzle, or
  • lemon buttercream

1

Set the oven to 170ºC/340°F. Grease your mini bundt tins with some butter and flour.

 

2

Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks and set aside. It’s best to use a freestanding electric kitchen mixer, otherwise you’ll end up with a sore arm.

 

3

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the milk slowly until fully incorporated.

4

Sift the dry ingredients together and add gradually to the mixture until it all comes together. Fold in the egg whites.

5

Pipe the mixture into the greased bundt tins. Fill to halfway so they have space to rise.

6

Bake for around 20-25 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Leave in the tin for around 20 minutes before turning out to cool on a wire rack.

 

7

Once cool, top with one of the following:

Lemon glaze: bring the lemon juice and sugar to the boil. Reduce and then brush over the bundt cakes.

Lemon drizzle: mix a little lemon juice with the icing sugar until you get the required consistency. Go steady on the liquid as its easier to add than take away.

Lemon buttercream: mix the butter and sifted icing sugar together until it resembles a sandy consistency. Then add a splash of milk. Add the lemon extract to taste. Beat for around 10 minutes.
