These Mini Lemon Bundt Cakes are a perfect ending to a meal or make a great snack! They are easy to make and can be served at your Easter table or a great treat for Mother’s Day
It’s the last day of March! Do you have your dessert for the Easter holiday all picked out? Well if not, I’ve got you covered today with these mini lemon bundt cakes.
They are super easy to make and what’s not to like with lemon, right? They are light, fresh and melt in your mouth. So amaze your guests (and yourself) with these fun cakes!
As I mentioned last week, we’ll be heading to our daughter and son-in-law’s for the weekend (and get to play with our 19 mo. old granddaughter – she is so enjoyable!) I plan on bringing the ham, a few side dishes and these little cakes. I’ll need to make a second batch though because the first ones are gone. The DIY Guy and I enjoyed them and I also shared a few with friends.
If you don’t have these mini pans, you could use a regular sized bundt cake pan. You’ll need to increase your baking time (I’m not exactly sure how long but probably 35-40 minutes – just be sure to check with a toothpick) This amount of glaze in this recipe would be enough also.

And in case you are wondering how the heck do those confetti look so (almost) perfect – well I used my tweezers to place them on. I didn’t want a glob of them stuck to one place. Yes, I may be a little OCD and my eyes get a bit crossed with trying to find the right colors.
I hope you have a fantastic holiday!
