Mini Vanilla Bundt Cake with Lemon Drizzle

This month we are baking inspired by girls scout cookies, because they are delicious and why not using this cookies as inspirations for great bundt cakes.
I love a good classic, for me shortbread and lemon are two of my favorites, so it was super easy for me to choose what type of bundt I want it to make.
Am also trying to eat smaller portions and a mini bundt its the perfect size to assure me the portion I want, lately I’m trying really hard to short my list of sweet treats.
Ok back to the bundt, this deliciously made mini bundt look super cute, taste amazing and you can easy share this as a party favor or a kids birthday dessert.
The lemon drizzle gives it some freshness and citrus flavor, to make it more appealing to the senses.
Hope you like then and enjoy the recipe.

Let me know how you can twist your favorite bundt cake in to a delicious girl scout cookie.

I was drinking coffee while making my second batch.
Anyways, cut the center of the vanilla bean and with the other side of the knife remove all the caviar, yes caviar.

Alternate dry ingredients with the milk until the mixture is combine.
Ok so I use a Wilton mini bundt cake for this recipe, but if you don’t have one just use your normal bundt cake pan, don’t buy one just for this recipe.
Add 1/4 cup of the mixture to each cavity and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown and cook in the center.
To make the drizzle just combine the powder sugar with the lemon juice until it is runny but not super runny, don’t let it run :).
Drizzle each mini bundt and enjoy.
