Lemon Berry Mini Bundt Cakes are a fresh, light, and delicious breakfast bundt cake full of yogurt, raspberries, blueberries, and lemon flavor!
We've recently been loving the delicious, colorful abundance of fruit that summer brings lately... strawberries and blueberries at our farm are beginning to ripen and are deliciously sweet- begging to be added to tons of delicious recipes.
I searched far and wide for delicious raspberry bread recipes I thought my kids would love, and didnt find one I was really moved by for them. There are so many recipes loaded with butter, sugar, and taste overly sweet- I wanted something that was light, springy, and let the flavor from fresh summer berries shine.
With a little trial and error, I came up with this delicious, moist, and colorful berry lemon mini bundt cake recipe- it is a HUGE win that I know your family will love as much as ours!
They are almost just as gorgeous in the pan, fresh out of the oven, as they are with a little powdered sugar sprinkled on top!
These are such an amazing way to enjoy a beautiful summer bounty - and sure to be your favorite new bundt cake!
Where are bundt cakes from?
Did you know? Bundt cakes started as a European brioche-like cake called Gugelhupf, which was popular in the Jewish communities of Germany, Austria and Poland.
Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with tea, coffee, or juice for a delicious breakfast - or set them out after a meal for an unforgettable dessert!
These also make delicious hostess or housewarming presents- simply wrap with some parchment paper and a little baking twine, and you're sure to make a memorable impression!
Just look - aren't these bundt cakes gorgeous?!?!
Tips to Perfect Mini Bundt Cakes - how to get them out of the pan
Mini bundt cakes can be a MAJOR pain in the butt for me (I realize this makes me sound incredibly inept, especially as someone with a food blog), but I am absolutely terrible at getting them to release.
I have found a couple tricks along the way if you're making these, and included some of my favorite products to help you get the perfect cake!
- Use a flour coated baking spray. I realize if you can't do gluten, this isn't a helpful tip for you, and I sincerely apologize - but the only baking spray that works for me, 100% of the time, is the Wilton easy release spray. I swear - that stuff is magic. I have an old nordic wear bundt pan that was my grandma's that I absolutely love - but can never get to release right - and that spray is the ONLY thing that helps me!
- Let the cakes cool before removing from the pan. This will also help the release! This isn't a cookie you want to take right off a baking sheet - for some reason, when I let bundts cool a bit, they release much better.
Since we're using so many fresh berries, the mixture will have some gaps when they cook down, creating big airy pockets that make these perfect for munching with a delicate, chewy crumb.
This recipe is light and fresh- there is a ton of berry flavor with a subtle lemon cake base. It isn't too sweet or heavy - perfect for a summer breakfast or dessert!
