Mini Lemon Cake Recipe

I just finished baking these cute mini lemon cakes for the Weekend. They are sweet, lemony, and soo juicy. I have a feeling they not gonna last much beyond the time my oldest kids come home from school :)

These mini cakes are so easy and super quick to make. A very yummy way to start your morning with a cup of hot coffee.

This little snicker doodle went into my photo shoot, and kept stealing the cakes from the plate :)

Mini Lemon Cakes

2 Sticks Vegetable Shortening (or Butter)
1 cup Sugar
4 Eggs
Zest of one Lemon (finely grated)
Juice of one Lemon
1 cup Flower
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix shortening with sugar. Add one egg at the time to the mixer. Add grated lemon zest, and the lemon juice. Then add the flower with baking powder to the mixer. Combine well. Pour into lightly buttered silicon baking forms. Bake ca 15 minutes, or until fully baked through.

I love taking silicon baking form. The cakes come out so easy, without breaking apart. They are also easier to clean.

Let cakes cool on a cookie rack. Meantime if you like, you can make a lemon glaze for the topping.

Lemon Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar
a few drops of lemon juice

Mix together. Tip: Use very little of juice. The glaze should be thick and creamy. If you add to much juice the glaze will seep into cakes.

Enjoy, and have a happy weekend everyone!
