TWD-Lemon-Drenched Mini Cakes

This Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Wendy of Pink Stripes. You can find the recipe on her blog, along with lots of other delicious recipes. I have made multiple recipes from Wendy's blog and love it.

I made these when I was taking dinner to someone who had just had a baby.

I completely omitted the rum from the cake and the syrup. I added 1/2 tsp of lemon extract to the syrup and the cakes.
I made 1/2 of the recipe, which made 6 mini bundts, and they were done baking in about 19 minutes.

I got to taste a crumb of this cake because my kids got to the mini bundt I left for us to try before I could get a real bite.
They loved it.

I loved how easy it was to make. Definitely one that you could throw together at the last minute.

Oh, I love these as mini bundts...what a great idea! Going there with this soon. The cake was a hit here...well, we didn't let the kids have any with all that rum and all, but we sure enjoyed it!

Any easy to make and bake recipe that is also gobbled up quickly is always a winner in my book :)

Lemon sounds delicious. I want to try that next time. And I agree they were easy to make.
