This post first appeared June 12, 2031 and was shared in SisterMAG Issue 7. I hope you enjoy this favorite from my kitchen!

The children showered me with paper today. A year’s worth of paper: art projects and watercolors, math page tear outs, macaroni and yarn art, binders of writing, both penned by my children and about my children (by the children in their class). It was like a ticker tape parade, my house littered with paper. Lots and lots of it.

Maybe it was a ticker tape parade, in a way. We celebrated the last full day of school. Tomorrow is a short day, followed by one final day — hours really — in the classroom.

We made it.

And now it’s time to figure out how to keep these kids busy for the next 75 days.

While I figure that out, I wanted to share a recipe for Meyer Lemon Mini Bundt Cakes. This recipe focuses on two things I adore: Italy and lemons.

Individual Bundt Cakes served on a white cake stand.

These mini bundt cakes are full of lemony zing, from the sweet zest of Meyer lemons to the glaze spiked with limoncello liquor. And they’re just the right size to have a cake all to yourself. I may have to bake another batch to celebrate the end of school year…and I know a couple of little ones who can help.

How To Make Meyer Lemon Mini Bundt Cakes

Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until fully incorporated. Add vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest and blend.

In a small bowl, whisk together cake and all purpose flours, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to the batter in two steps (alternating with buttermilk), ending with the last addition of flour. Careful not to overmix. Divide the batter into bundt cake pans.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and the cakes are golden brown. Allow the cakes to cool while you prepare a glaze with lemon juice, sugar and limoncello to brush over the cakes.

Ingredients

For the Cakes:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 Meyer lemons
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons limoncello

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter and flour your bundt cake pan.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest and blend.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cake and all purpose flours, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the batter in two steps, alternating with the buttermilk, and ending with the last addition of flour. Mix until just incorporated, taking care not to over mix. Divide the batter into the bundt cake pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and the cakes are golden brown. Let the cakes rest for about 5-10 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a wire rack.
  • While the cakes cool, make the glaze by whisking together the lemon juice, sugar and limoncello. If you wish, you could heat the glaze over low heat in a small sauce pan. Let it cool slightly before brushing over the bundt cakes.

    I figured summer vacation started when all I could hear was kids screaming and playing outside my apt all day long. Omg, it’s going to be a tough one, unless they decide to join some camp or their parents take them for a vacation. That cake looks perfect and yay on the feature. Italy and lemon, yes those are two of my fav things too :)
