LEMON & LIME “MOJITO” BABY BUNDTS

LEMON & LIME BABY BUNDT

We’ve just said goodbye to Easter and all the chocolate that goes with it. What I really want now is something citrus and light , something Lemon would do the trick.

Though I have a confession I did buy two Mars Easter Eggs yesterday in Tesco. In my defense they were reduced to one euro, and I did need them to make a batch of Mars Bar Brownies  for my nieces party, (you can find that recipe here on my FB Baking Page ) But what I was really craving was something Lemon.

Lemon for me is the taste and smell of Summer –  not that there is any sign of summer at the moment the rain hasn’t stopped in two days. That’s were these little Lemon & Lime Baby Bundts come in, small but packed with the taste of summer. You can’t go wrong with lemon, it’s a classic flavour.  I mean who can say no to a lemon drizzle cake at any time of year.

These little bundts are that bit extra special, lemon with a hint of lime and rum , all the flavours of my favorite summer cocktail “The Mojito” (and I never say no to one of these.)

When I first made these I was lucky to have a jar of “Mojito” jam that my friend brought me back from France, but since then I’ve used lime marmalade and a little lemon curd if I have any to hand. This works just as good. If your feeling brave you could use a drop or two of real rum in the batter or just used rum extract.

This is a very simple recipe, bakes in less than 20 mins. I used some silicone mini bundt pans to bake these in.  You could also use a 12 cup mini bundt pan. “Mini” is the key here, it works just right for this recipe, and of course they look very pretty and cute the perfect amount of a lemon hit in each mouthful.  I’m sure this recipe would work in a normal size bundt tin but I’ve yet to try it. These always go down very well at my kid’s school bake sale. I’m always asked to make a couple of batches of “those lemony thingys” come bake sale time, that’s they’re called in the school.

Enjoy the recipe
