Blueberry Lemon Mini Bundt Cakes

Hi Everyone,

I am just sitting here on Monday night sipping a decaf latte and eating a light, airy dessert that is filled with blueberries and has a wonderful lemon glaze.  Mmmm, is it good.  Would you like me to share with you?

I bought a mini bundt pan from Target about a month ago and I have been itching to use it.  It just took some time to figure out a wonderful spring dessert that is full of flavor and light on calories and this exceeded my expectations.

I’ll be honest with you, I am not the best person when it comes to drizzling glaze onto things.  I do not make to many things that takes glaze or frosting, so I apologize to you. I’m still practicing.  But I will tell you the glaze tastes perfect.  It’s made with confectioner’s sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice. It’s so perfect on my little cakes.

These little sponge cakes would be perfect to serve for Easter, Mother’s Day or a brunch.  There just enough dessert to top a big meal.  You could also fill them with strawberries and top with whip cream, or you could use any fruit you want, maybe raspberries with almonds?  If your feeling naughty, I am betting a chocolate glaze would taste wonderful on them.  I may have to attempt to try that next.

I just love these little cakes, they really are perfect and seem to be a hit.  I have them on the kitchen counter and when Hubby came home, his eyes lite up and he asked what are those?  I told him to help himself, and he did, he ate two in a row.  I asked were they good? While his mouth was full, he nodded his head and said uh huh!  These little desserts seem dainty and kind of girly, but they are Husband approved!  I’ll take that!!!

Well my friends have a wonderful day.  I am off to clean the dishes and pack up my lunch for tomorrow.

Have a great day!

Bon Appétit!
