These mini cakes are small enough so that no one has to share!One of the most awesome things about being a food blogger is the awesome community that comes with it. Food bloggers, I’m sure all of you agree with me.  The sense of camaraderie and support for one another always amazes me, and there’s always someone to help celebrate successes, both blogging related and life related.

In the spirit of camaraderie and celebration, today I’m bringing you a recipe as part of a virtual baby shower for my friend Cheryl over at 40 Aprons. Cheryl is welcoming a baby boy at the end of September, and a group of us got together to share some delicious recipes in celebration of Cheryl and baby Leo!

I’m drooling over this Vegan Salted Caramel Ice Cream and these swoon-worthy Matcha Raspberry S’mores. I also love her site design – so cute and fun. If you’ve never been over there, you must check it out. Cheryl, congratulations to you and I’m so excited to see pictures of Leo!

For this baby shower, I made some of the cutest Mini Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cakes! I’ve had this mini bundt pan for a while now and rarely used it, and I figured these lemon blueberry cakes would be the perfect treat to show off in cute mini bundt cake form. I loved that these were in cute individual sizes – it’s so fun, and would be perfect to bring to a party. Everyone gets their own, and who doesn’t love not having to share?

These mini cakes are small enough so that no one has to share!The lemon bundt cake recipe is adapted from America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book and it creates a fluffy cake with a tender, moist crumb. It uses lemon juice and lemon zest to give it a slightly tangy lemon taste, and buttermilk helps to further enhance that nice tang. It has just enough lemon flavor, and the added blueberries add a nice extra burst of summery freshness.

The glaze comes together super easily in a blender, and is made of juicy blueberries, lemon juice, zest, and powdered sugar. You can adjust the amount of powdered sugar depending on how thick you want the glaze, but it deliciously compliments the cake without being overly lemony, as some lemon glazes can tend to be.

Mini Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 mini cakes
  • 2 cups (10 oz.) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened and cut into chunks
  • 1⅓ cups (9.25 oz.) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
For the glaze
  • 1¼ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. With butter and flour, grease each mini bundt pan well (this is the pan I used). You can also use a 10-cup Bundt pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla, and lemon juice.
  3. In a large bowl or stand mixer bowl, combine the butter, sugar, and lemon zest with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and egg yolk one at a time until combined.
  4. Beat in ⅓ of the flour mixture followed by half of the buttermilk. Repeat with half of the remaining flour and remaining buttermilk. Finish by folding in the remaining flour until just incorporated. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Fill each mini bundt pan about ⅔ of the way full. You may need to bake in two batches depending on your pan.
  6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. If your using a regular bundt pan, bake for 45-50 minutes. Let cakes cool for 20 minutes in the pan and then flip onto a wire rack to cool completely.
For the glaze
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until blueberries are blended and glaze is smooth. Add more powdered sugar if you'd like a thicker glaze. Pour over cooled cakes.

    I’m making these as I type, but am I missing something? I don’t see anything about when to add the blueberries – but I’m assuming you fold them into the batter after it’s done mixing? BTW, it smells delicious already and I haven’t even put it in the oven yet

  18. The recipe is honestlyrics delish! You forgot to incorporate the blueberry in the batter but I may be missing that part. Just wanted you to know. These are lovely made them this morning! Yum!
