Mini Meyer Lemon and Strawberry Bundt Cakes
Makes 12 Mini Bundt Cakes
3 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon Salt

2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
2 Cup Strawberries, diced
1 ¼ Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
Zest of one Lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Use a stand mixer and cream together the butter and sugar
until light and fluffy. Next add the
eggs and mix well. Add the zest of the two
lemons and lemon juice along with the Greek yogurt and mix.
Add the baking soda and salt and mix. Slowly incorporate the flour until all
combined. Remove the paddle and scrap
down the sides. Using a spoon gently
fold the diced strawberries into the mixture until just incorporated.
Prepare the pan by greasing and dusting with flour to
prevent sticking. Spoon the batter into
each mini bundt pan about 2/3 full. Reserve
the batter for the second baking and repeat preparing each pan. Cook for about 30 minutes or until knife
comes out clean. Let cool about an
hour. Drizzle the glaze over each little
cake and letting it drip down the sides.
