Recipe Corner: Mini Lemon Cakes

Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina,  @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG

This recipe was inspired by a cake I found back in Austria that was originally made with tons of sugar and butter. It is one of my favorite cakes (not all cakes are made with icing where I am from). The goal was to make a healthy balanced treat that still somewhat resembles the original. Often with healthy baked goods especially the ones that do not contain a lot of fat or sugar and are made with plant based protein, texture is a big issue. But with the almond flour, this is not an issue. It allows the cake to stay crumbly and not become gooey. Not everything can always be 100% substituted so what matters is to find a good balance between what we want and what we need. These can also be baked in muffin tins but there is just something about a mini bundt cake that makes it oh so much sweeter. These are perfect for coffee and tea time, especially with a bit of whipped cream. Enjoy!

4) Spray 4 mini Bundt Cake pans with cooking spray and divide batter evenly.

 

5) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes before popping the mini cakes out of the form and let cool on a rack to room temperature.

 

5.a) Top with a bit of powdered sugar or if you want it a bit more lemony you can mix some lemon juice with a bit of sweetener and poke the cakes with a toothpick and drizzle them with it. You can also make a glaze with cream cheese and lemon juice and sweeten that.

* You can use Maple Syrup or any other kind of syrup, just keep in mind that it will increase the macros for carbs (and the sugar) in the recipe.
