This is always kind of a weird time of year for me. I start getting a little antsy for fall around this time of year. I know we’re still a month and a half away from it officially being fall, but I’m already wishing for crisp fall air, cozy booties and hot cocoa (seriously. I love hot cocoa). I think it’s also because this is the HOTTEST time of year, with temps in the 90’s and I’m just a teensy bit over it, ya know?
Anyway, we have these Mini Citrus Bundt Cakes with a Sweet Lemon Glaze for you all today! This recipe is sort of my “hurry up and get here fall and winter!” wishful thinking sort of sitch. Although I do think this is still a great dessert for the summer, especially with a big scoop of ice cream or even whipped cream! I also just like how impressive lil’ bundt cakes look and they’re really super easy to make! I got the mold to this pan on amazon. I was worried that my cakes wouldn’t un-mold properly, but they did and with a perfect sort of “crust” surrounding them (think the end pieces of a pan of brownies!)! Anyway, these little guys are perfect to bring over to a party or get together, so enjoy! xx, Jenny
