There are some reasons I will turn the oven on the summer for. Now, I don’t do it often, and it doesn’t even get all that hot where I live. Mid 80s would be just about the hottest it gets, with the rare 90 degree F day thrown in there once or twice. While this may be true, this still seems pretty warm when you don’t have air conditioning. So, I don’t turn the oven on too often in the summer.
I do turn the oven on when I have the yearning for the baked goods that I would otherwise have in the winter. Pound cake is one of those recipes, and more recently I have become pretty fond of pound cake in the mini version. In my personal opinion, mini desserts are always better. You can wrap them up individually and that keeps them fresher for just a little bit longer.
These mini lemon pound cakes are bursting with flavor. They are drizzled with the most addicting vanilla bean glaze, that I could literally eat with a spoon. They are lightly scented with lemon and are so moist, yet are dense enough not to fall apart.
These mini lemon pound cakes are perfect just about any time of year. Pair them with a farmhouse ale or saison. It will really highlight the lemon flavor! Enjoy!
